'Angel Band', originally titled 'My Latest Sun Is Sinking Fast', is a traditional American gospel standard based on a poem by writer Jefferson Hascall. The tune is most famously recorded by Ralph Stanley and the Stanley Brothers, Emmylou Harris, and the Monkees. 

Most recently, you may have heard the track on the 2000 film O, Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack. 

Below is Vince Gill, George Jones, and Dr. Ralph Stanley, three country legends from three completely different eras, performing an updated version of the classic. There's a little less bluegrass twang, but these three still bring ample soul... not to mention their voices sound fantastic together.

LYRICS BELOW

My latest sun is sinking fast
My race is nearly run
My longest trials now are past
My triumph has begun

Oh come angel band
Come and around me stand
Bear me away on your snow white wings
To my immortal home
Bear me away on you snow white wings
To my immortal home

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

Oh come angel band
Come and around me stand
Bear me away on your snow white wings
To my immortal home
Bear me away on you snow white wings
To my immortal home

I know I'm near the holy ranks
Of friends and kindred dear
I brush the dew on Jordan's banks
The crossing must be near

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