Angels Are Singing (In Heaven Tonight)

Carter & Ralph Stanley/APRS Fort-Knox Music Inc.-Trio Music Company Inc., BMI

Sweetheart I recall the day I first met you
I wonder if you remember the same
We talked of the love we had for each other
And longed for the day we'd change your sweet name


Oh I can still hear your voice in the evening
I see your sweet face, your blue eyes so bright
God took you away and left me so lonely
The angels are singing in Heaven tonight

As the years passed away, we cherished each other
No worries or cares to darken our way
From our little home up in the Clinch Mountains
The Savior came down and called you one day

(repeat chorus)

I'll always be true and love you my darling
But I know you are happy and welcome up there
When God calls me home, I'll meet you in Heaven
Sleep peacefully darling, I'll meet you up there

(repeat chorus)
