'Angel Band' The Oak Ridge Boys Live Performance

Praise the Lord as The Oak Ridge Boys sing a rousing rendition of ‘Angel Band.’ This classic hymn started as a poem. Decades later, it was set to music and became the song we know and love today. 

Countless artists have covered the famous tune, most notably The Stanley Brothers and Emmylou Harris. 

The song was even featured on the soundtrack to the hit 2000 film O Brother, Where Art Thou? 

“My latest sun is sinking fast, my race is nearly run
My strongest trials now are past
My triumph is begun
Oh come Angel Band”

The Oak Ridge Boys are known for their unique blend of country music and gospel. This iconic group consists of Duane Allen singing lead vocals, Joe Bonsall singing tenor, William Lee Golden with his baritone voice, and Richard Sterban singing deep bass. They all joined the group at different times, but this particular lineup of men have been together since 1973.

Today, the men are at Gaither Studios for a live performance of the classic hymn ‘Angel Band.’

“Thy holy ones behold they come
I hear the noise of wings
Oh bear my longing heart to Him who bled and died for me
Whose Blood now cleanses from all sin and gives me victory”

What a beautiful reminder that there is hope in the arms of the Lord. 

Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God to salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
