 Angel Band       

F                Bb      F                C7     F

My strongest trials now are past, my triumph has begun

Oh, come Angel Band come and around me stand
   Bb                   F                      C7       F7 
Oh bear me away on your snow white wings to my immortal home

F                        Bb       F             C7   F 
Whose blood now cleanses from all sin and gives me victory
