We sang this song at church this morning. =) I always love singing this song. I can't stop singing it now. One of the older ladies at my church just gets so into the old hyms. She is in a wheel chair, but she dances and claps and sings and cries. I love her so much. It brings me so much joy to look down at the congregation from the choir box and see her just loving the lord every Sunday. Our God is an awesome God to make such an amazing woman. To bad for us he is going to take her away soon. Love ya Margie.

The first poster left out a verse, sometimes this is also left out of hymnals. .but there is a another verse, ,here is the way I was taught

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, fly away, Oh Glory
I'll fly away; (in the morning)
When I die, Hallelujah, by and by,
I'll fly away.

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

(Repeat Chorus)

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

(Repeat Chorus)

Just a few more weary days and then,
I'll fly away;
To a land where joy shall never end,
I'll fly away (I'll fly away)

This is the link to a wonderful rendition of I'll Fly Away performed by The Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Del McCoury Bluegrass Band on the David Letterman show a few weeks ago.

Hope you enjoy it.

this is My favorite song we song this song at My daddy funeral

This song was sung in an episode of "The Waltons" by Jason (Jon Walmsley) and guest star Linda Purl.  It was a great sequence;  him teaching her the song and in days following, adding harmony and culminating in both of them singing it at the Dew Drop Inn as an audition piece for her.  It was done uptempo, faster than it is usually sung, but it was great!  You just had to clap your hands and sing along, it was so uplifting!

This was the only song I wanted at my dear wife's funeral. She died too young (40) with three little boys left to mourn her. Beautiful and poignant.

Godspeed, Aimee.

Thanks, Alfred Brumley.

This song was used at our Vacation Bible School this year (ended today). The kids LOVE it!  After Mass on the Sunday following VBS week, the kids will gather in the front of church to sing the VBS songs for their parents. Mostly the songs from this year, but we always throw in favorites from previous years. This is year # 10 !  (100 kids, ages 3 to grade 5 + 60 crew, grade 6 & up + 30 adult volunteers)           ** (CD of 10 non-denominational, mostly pop-Christian songs can be purchased from http://group.com/childrens-ministry/vbs under "Sky VBS 2012"...underlying theme through most songs is having Trust in God.)

The David Crowder Band does a version of I fly away in the song I saw the light which is a great version... It's in his iTunes sessions album I recommend it big time.. Very southern bluegrass!!!!

I'm 14 and when I sing this to the one true Savior I cry with joy. Because I know the place this song tells about flying to. We're not walking there. We're flying like birds from prison bars have flown. I'll fly away. In Jesus name.

Does anyone know where you can get the sheet music version of the one featured on Group's VBS 2012 "Sky" - the one that features a great sax solo?

Best ever version of "fly away" is Keith Urban on country grace albums. I never liked old hymn style worship till I purchased 3 of these country hymn recordings, now Im a fan

The Gaither Vocal Band recorded I'll Fly Away some time ago. i just love the style they used to record the song and what a harmony. Bill Gaither, Mark Lowry, David Phelps, Michael English & Wes Hampton!
