If you want to know
Where I'm going?
Where I'm going, soon

If anybody ask you
Where I'm going
Where I'm going soon

I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
To be with my Lord

I can take the pain
The heartaches they bring
The comfort in knowing
I'll soon be gone

As God gives me grace
I'll run this race
Until I see my Savior
Face to face

I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
To be with my Lord

I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
To be with my Lord

    It had a double meaning to black slaves - a wish (although not a probable reality) of "goin up" (north) to be free. If they couldn't become free "goin up' north, at least they could become free if they died "goin up" to heaven.

    Going up yonder means to me going up to the heaven... Go to leave in that secret place where's every christian gonna leave in large without pains, cries, suffering, tears... To conclude going up yonder means go to leave in that city of gold with my savior and my king jesus christ!!

    I feel that its a song telling about leaving this earth to go to heaven to be with god. A place where there is no pain, suffering, and heartache but of a place that is magnificent and who wouldn't want to leave in a place that is promised to be great. That's what i get from this song , because soon i will be joining all those whose have also gone up yonder to be with our lord.
