This song reminds me of my childhood, growing up with parents with a sense of family, healthy work ethics, Christian values, creativity, persistence and perseverance. Our Momma would be in the kitchen early Sunday morning, cooking breakfast and dinner at once, all before we went to church. I would wake up to her singing this song and many others and the great aroma of coffee and great food. We lived on meager incomes, running a farm, while both parents had at least one job each, but we had the joy of the Lord and felt like royalty - because of intrinsic values. Awesome!

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.

"Goin' Up Yonder" is a song by Walter Hawkins that gives me great comfort; because my sister Ruth passed away and has Gone Up Yonder to be with her Lord. It is a song of comfort to anyone who has lost a love one to a homecoming. It helps me to not be selfish; when I wish Ruth was still here on this earthly planet because I love her so much. It helps me to understand she was only on loan to her family/friends; but she is God's child eternally. When I remember that she is with her heavenly Father; then I can not be that selfish and wish for her to stay here in the struggles and pains of living an earthly life. Being with God Up Yonder is way more awesome than being on earth with me. I love Ruth; but I can not try and compete with God's Love or His Choice to bring his Angel Ruth home early, up yonder, unto glory with Him.
