Lyrics verse 1:
MY LATEST SUN
IS SINKING FAST,
MY RACE
IS NEARLY RUN.
MY STRONGEST TRIALS
NOW ARE PAST,
MY TRIUMPH
HAS BEGUN.

Chorus:
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.

verse 2:
OH BEAR MY LONGING HEART
TO HIM
WHO BLED
AND DIED FOR ME,
WHOSE BLOOD
NOW CLEANSES FROM ALL SIN
AND GIVES ME VICTORY.

Chorus:
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.

Lyrics I'M WORRIED,
TROUBLED,
I CAN'T SLEEP,
THIS STORY
I MUST TELL:
THE WORST MISTAKE
I EVER MADE
WAS LOVING YOU
TOO WELL.

I'VE HELD YOU CLOSE
TEN THOUSAND TIMES,
YOU PROMISED TO BE MINE,
YOU BROKE MY HEART
TEN THOUSAND WAYS
WHEN YOU KISSED ME
OUR LAST TIME

I'M WORRIED,
TROUBLED,
I CAN'T SLEEP,
THIS STORY
I MUST TELL:
THE WORST MISTAKE
I EVER MADE
WAS LOVING YOU
TOO WELL.

ANOTHER MAN
TOOK YOU FROM ME,
HE STOLE
YOUR HEART AWAY,
I'VE OFTEN PRAYED
TO GOD ABOVE
YOU'D WANDER BACK
SOME DAY.

I'M WORRIED,
TROUBLED,
I CAN'T SLEEP,
THIS STORY
I MUST TELL:
THE WORST MISTAKE
I EVER MADE
WAS LOVING YOU
TOO WELL.

Lyrics Chorus:
OH DEATH,
OH DEATH,
WON'T YOU SPARE ME
OVER TO ANOTHER YEAR.

verse 1:
OH WHAT IS THIS
THAT I CAN'T SEE
WITH ICE COLD HANDS
TAKING HOLD OF ME?
I AM DEATH
NONE CAN EXCEL,
I HOLD THE KEY
TO HEAVEN OR HELL.

Chorus:
OH DEATH,
OH DEATH,
WON'T YOU SPARE ME
OVER TO ANOTHER YEAR.

verse 2:
I'LL BRIDLE YOUR TONGUE
UNTIL YOU CAN'T TALK,
I'LL STIFFEN YOUR LIMBS
UNTIL YOU CAN'T WALK,
I'LL BLIND YOUR EYES
UNTIL YOU CAN'T SEE,
THIS VERY HOUR
COME GO WITH ME.

Chorus:
OH DEATH,
OH DEATH,
WON'T YOU SPARE ME
OVER TO ANOTHER YEAR.

verse 3:
OH DEATH
HOW YOU'RE TREATING ME,
YOU'RE BLINDING MY EYES
UNTIL I CAN'T SEE,
YOU'RE STIFFENING MY LIMBS,
YOU'RE MAKING ME COLD,
YOU'RE TAKING MY BODY
FROM MY SOUL.

Chorus:
OH DEATH,
OH DEATH,
WON'T YOU SPARE ME
OVER TO ANOTHER YEAR!
