Angel Band - the Stanley Brothers


We played Monopoly ate bad food and watched "O' Brother Where Art Thou?" instead of riding in the hard rain in Milton, FL. It's a great movie, based on the Odysey, set in the South with a fantastic but persistent soundtrack. This song, the last one featured in the movie, got stuck on play for most of my remaing days here...

My latest sun is sinking fast, My race is nearly run,
My strongest trials now have passed, My triumph is begun.

Chorus:
Oh, come, angel band, Come and around me, stand,
Oh, bear me away on your snow-white wings To my immortal home,

I know I'm nearing holy ranks Of friends and kindred dear. I brush the dew of Jordan's banks The crossing must be near

Chorus:

I've almost gained my heav'nly home My spirit loudly sings
The holy ones behold they come I hear the noise of wings

Chorus:

Oh, bear my longing heart to Him Who bled and died for me,
Whose blood now cleanses from all sin And brings me victory.

Chorus:
Oh, come, angel band, Come and around me, stand,
Oh, bear me away on your snow-white wings To my immortal home,
