I Heard the Angels Singing

This song is by Reverend Gary Davis and appears on the album From Blues to Gospel (1971).

One day as I was walkin' along
I heard the angels singing
I heard a voice and I saw no one
I heard the angels singing
What you reckon he said to me
I heard the angels singing
Said my sins are forgiven and my soul set free
I heard the angels singing

Well, the Holy Ghost on fire fell on me
You ought to have been there when he fell on me

Then I got in the spirit and I began to shout
People come a running, miles around
People wondering what it was all about

Went down in the valley one day just to pray
Met old Satan down on my way

What you reckon that old rascal said to me
He said I was too old to die and too young to pray

I went on down, didn't pay no mind what he said
Made Satan out a liar and I stayed all day

Went down in the valley, fell down on my knees
I said, Lord help me if you please

One morning soon, just awhile before day
One morning soon, just awhile before day
One morning soon, just awhile before day
I heard the angels singing, I heard the angels singing

Down by my bedside I was down on my knees
Down by my bedside I was down on my knees
Down by my bedside I was down on my knees
I heard the angels singing, I heard the angels singing
