I'll Fly Away

I'll Fly Away Lyrics

One glad mornin'
when my work is over
I'll fly away

To that home on
Godís celestial shore
I'll fly away

Oh I'll fly away
In the mornin' children
I'll fly away

When I die
Hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

I want to sing like the bird sings, not worrying who listens or what they think. - Jelaludding Rumi
