Hank Williams Sr – The Angel Of Death lyrics

(Hank Williams Sr.)

In the great book of John you're warned of the day
When you'll be laid beneath the cold clay
The angel of death will come from the sky
And claim your poor soul when the time comes to die.

When the angel of death comes down after you
Can you gladly say that you have been true
For you'll have to go all the way by yourself
When God shall send down the angel of death.

When the lights all grow dim and the dark shadows creep
And ones who loved you are gathered to weep
Can you truthfully say with your dying breath
You're ready to meet the angel of death.
