The Stanley Brothers

The Stanley Brothers were an American bluegrass duo made up of brothers Carter and Ralph Stanley. more »

The latest sun is sinking fast, my race is nearly run 
My strongest trials now are past, my triumph is begun 
O come Angel Band, come and around me stand 
O bear me away on your snowy wings to my immortal home 
O bear me away on your snowy wings to my immortal home 
I know I'm near the holy ranks of friends and kindred dear 
I've brushed the dew on Jordan's banks, the crossing must be near 
I've almost gained my Heavenly home, my spirit loudly sings 
The Holy ones, behold they come, I hear the noise of wings 
O bear my longing heart to Him who bled and died for me 
Whose blood now cleanses from all sin and gives me victory
