Angel Band (Jubilee Version) Lyrics – Tyler Childers

Hallelujah, jubilee
Hallelujah, jubilee

He stands behind the pulpit
He’s calling out a line
Responds to the congregation
Just a little way’s behind
Echoes down the streets of gold
Through the Pearly Gates
Dribbles down the Jordan
And it goes on by the banks

He’s rattling a Werther’s
On his dentures in the pew
He’s holding down the bass
It’s a little out of tune
But his heart is in the hymnal
And that’s all a boy can do
Make a joyful sound
‘Till the rest have come to roost

Hallelujah, jubilee
I can hear the angel band
I was blind but now I see
And I’ll jump right in amongst them
When I reach my glory land

She’s shouting in the aisle
She’s shaking something fierce
Feels so good to be here
After all these faithful years
Just took a walk with Jesus
Just touched his nail-scarred hands
Didn’t even bother her
That he ain’t a blue-eyed man

Hallelujah, jubilee
I can hear the angel band
I was blind but now I see
And I’ll jump right in amongst them
When I reach my glory land

There’s Hindus, Jews, and Muslims
And Baptists of all kinds
Catholic girls and Amish boys
Who’ve left their plows behind
Up there in the choir
Singing side by side
Wondering why exactly
They’ve been fussing the whole time

Hallelujah, jubilee
I can hear the angel band
I was blind but now I see
And I’ll jump right in amongst them
When I reach my glory land

Hallelujah, jubilee
Hallelujah, jubilee
I can hear the angel band
Hallelujah
