1 I'll fly away, oh glory, I'll fly away
2 When I die, hallelujah by and by, I'll fly away

3 Some bright morning when this life is o'er, I'll fly away
4 To a land* on God's celestial shore, I'll fly away

5 When the shadows of this life have grown, I'll fly away
6 Like a bird from these prison walls, I'll fly, I'll fly away

7 I'll fly away, oh glory, I'll fly away
8 When I die, hallelujah by and by, I'll fly away

9 Oh how glad and happy when we meet, I'll fly away
10 No more cold iron shackles on my feet, I'll fly away

11 I'll fly away, oh glory, I'll fly away
12 When I die, hallelujah by and by, I'll fly away

13 Just a few more weary days and then, I'll fly away
14 To a land where joy will never end, I'll fly away

15 I'll fly away, oh glory, I'll fly away
16 When I die, hallellujah by and by, I'll fly away

17 I'll fly away, oh glory, I'll fly away
18 When I die, hallellujah by and by, I'll fly away

19 I'll fly away, oh glory, I'll fly away
20 When I die, hallellujah by and by, I'll fly away

21 I'll fly away

22 Oh yeah, I'll fly away

    This when i die i'm going to meet jesus christ face to face. And i'm going to fly away to him. Also all my prayers fly away to him. And all my tears he wipes from my eyes, all the pain from my mind, and the pain of losing my little brother. That's what this song means to me!!! I can't wait to get to heaven and meet jesus face to face!!!

    Phil 3:20 But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.
