My latest sun is sinking fast
My race is nearly run
My strongest trials now are past
My triumph has begun

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

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

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

I know Iím near the holy ranks
Of friends and kindred dear
I brush the dew on Jordanís banks
The crossing must be near

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

Iíve almost gained my heavenly home
My spirit loudly sings
Thy holy ones, behold, they come!
I hear the noise of wings

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