I'll Fly Away

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). 


When the shadows of this life have gone, 
I'll fly away; 


Like a bird from prison bars has flown, 
I'll fly away (I'll fly away) 








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) 



I'll fly away, Oh Glory 
I'll fly away; (in the morning) 


When I die, Hallelujah, by and by, 
I'll fly away (I'll fly away).

Loved your illustrations for one of the sweet old Christian hymns about heading home to heaven! What a lovely encouragement and a fun post to show my grandkids as we continue working on our encouraging Bible memory verses all about heaven. Thank you!

You have a knack for combining your images with song lyrics. I do know this song-a great one. My fave has to be that 2nd to last one with the gorgeous lighting-but nice to see you taking a shadow selfie too.
