I'll Fly Away
by Bill Gaither



There was once a time when in my life, I was condemned to die
I was walking in my sinful ways
Oh, Jesus paid the ransom for my soul, I'll bid this world goodbye
When He calls me I'll fly, fly away

When He calls, I will answer Here am I
I'm ready if He wants me to die
There's a mansion thats waiting me on high
And I'm going there by and by

I have made my preparations
From this world of separation
I am walking on God's highway
When He calls me I'm gonna fly, I'm gonna fly away

Well If He needs me in the harvest, helping gather in the sheave
I will gladly labor on here below
But if my work on Earth is finished, and it's time for me to leave
When He calls me I will gladly go

When He calls, I will answer Here am I
I'm ready if He wants me to die
There's a mansion thats waiting me on high
And I'm going there by and bye

I have made my preparations
From this world of separation
I am walking on God's highway
When He calls me, I'm gonna fly, I'm gonna fly away
