"I Hear My Savior Calling" lyrics - THE STANLEY BROTHERS

"I Hear My Savior Calling"

My friends have gathered here around me
They know I'll soon be on my way
To live up there with Christ forever
That lovely land far away

I hear my savior now a callin'
He bids me now to come home
I'll stead'ly follow in his footsteps
I know he'll guide me safely home

In this world we're only strangers
We have sinned and all done wrong
But if you'll kneel in prayer my brother
At journey's end he'll call you home

I'm ready now for the journey
I know I'll soon be on my way
Sweet angels voices now will guide me
Oh heaven can't be far away
