I'll Fly Away lyrics

Albert E. Brumley

Some glad morning when this life is o'er
I'll fly away
To a home on God's celestial shore
I'll fly away

I'll fly away ( O glory )
I'll fly away ( in the morning )
When I die, Hallelujah, by and by
I'll fly away ( fly away )

When the shadows of this life have grown
I'll fly away
Like a bird from prison bars has flown
I'll fly away

* Refrain

Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away
To a land where joys shall never end
I'll fly away

* Refrain
