The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music


Angel Band [core]

My latest sun is 4 sinking 1 fast
My race is 5 nearly 1 run
My strongest trials 4 now are 1 passed
My triumph 5 has 1 begun

Chorus
5 Oh, come, 1 angel band, 5 Come, and a 1 round me stand
Oh 4 bear me away on your 1 snow white wings
To my im- 5 mortal 1 home
Oh 4 bear me away on your 1 snow white wings
To my im- 5 mortal 1 home

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

I've almost reached my heavenly home
My spirit loudly sings
The holy ones, behold they come
I hear the noise of wings

I know I'm joining holy ranks
Of friends and loved ones dear
I brushed the dew on Jordan's banks
I know the crossing's near

It’s on Strum Machine!
