My latest sun is sinkin' 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

I've almost gained my heavenly home
My spirit loudly sings
The holy ones, behold, they come
I hear the sound 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

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

    It means that god in all his mercy has set aside angels to greet us and walk us into heaven where god is waiting on with our savior jesus christ. It is a song of surrendering to and wanting death to come and take them home... Amen joyce day guy
