1 When my work on earth is ended,
Will the angels come for me?
Will they bear me on their pinions
O’er the dark and stormy sea?

Refrain:
Will the angels come for me,
When I cross the stormy sea?
Will they take me home to God,
When the long, rough way I’ve trod?

2 When life’s sun is slowly sinking,
And the soul will soon be free,
Will the gates of Heaven open,
And the angels come for me? [Refrain]

3 Will the angels bear me upward
To that home so bright and fair?
There to be with Christ my Savior,
And the ransomed gathered there? [Refrain]
