Angel Band

One of my favorite songs about Home, Angel Band, performed by one of my favorite bands, Over the Rhine.  The song will place things in perspective every time I hear it.  The lyrics are as follows….

“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 & 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 & 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 & died for me
Whose blood now cleanses from all sin & gives me victory”

Nikki and I speak often of the day our Lord will take us Home, and I know our marriage has been made richer because of it.  Be encouraged.  All of your trials and hurts are temporary.

This life is passing by in a blink.

“….I hear the noise of wings….”
