I'll Fly Away

Some bright morning when this life is over / I'll fly away
To that land on God's celestial shore / I'll fly away

Chorus:
I'll 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 have flown / I'll fly away

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

Oh how glad and happy we will be / I'll fly away
No more cold iron shackles on my feet / I'll fly away


Green Pastures

Troubles and trials often betray those / On in the weary body to stray
But we shall walk beside the still water / With the good shepherd leading the way

Those who have strayed were sought by the master / He who once gave his life for the sheep
Out on the mountain still he is searching / Bringing them in forever to keep

Chorus:
Going up home to live in green pastures / Where we shall live and die never more
Even the Lord will be in that number / When we shall reach that heavenly shore

We will not heed the voice of a stranger / For he would lead us on to despair
Following on with Jesus our savior / We shall all reach that country so fair


By The Mark

When I cross over / I will shout and sing / I will know my savior / By the mark where the nails have been

Chorus:
By the mark where the nails have been / By the signs upon his precious skin
I will know my saviour when I come to him / By the mark where the nails have been

A man of riches may claim a crown of jewels / But the king of Heaven can be told from the prince of fools

On Calvary Mountain where they made him suffer so / All my sin was paid for a long time ago


Turn Your Radio On

 Come and listen in to a radio station / Where the mighty hosts of Heaven sing
Turn your radio on, turn your radio on
If you want to hear the songs of Zion / Coming from the land of endless spring
Turn your radio on, turn your radio on

Chorus:
Turn your radio on and listen to the music in the air
Turn your radio on, Heaven's glory share
Turn your lights down low, and listen to the master's radio
Get in touch with God, turn your radio on

Brother listen in to the gloryland chorus, listen to the glad Hosannas roll
Turn your...
If you want a taste of love eternal, get a little Heaven in your soul

Listen to the songs of the fathers and mothers, and the many friends who've gone before
Some eternal morning we shall meet them over on the Hallelujah shore


Angel Band

My latest sun is sinking fast / My race is nearly run
My strongest trials now are past / My triumph has begun

Chorus:
Oh come angel band / come and around me stand
Oh bear me away on your snow white wings / To my eternal home

Oh bear my longing heart to Him / Who bled and died for me
Whose blood now cleanses from all sin / And gives me victory

I've almost reached my heavenly home / My spirit loudly sings
The holy ones, behold, they come / I hear the sound of wings


Walls Of Time

The wind is blowing 'cross the mountain / And out on the valley way below
It sweeps the grave of my darling / When I die that's where I want to go

Chorus:
Lord send the angels for my darling / And take her to that home on high
I'll wait my time out here on Earth, love / And come to you when I die

Our names are carved upon that tombstone / I promised you before you died
Our love will bloom forever, daring / Till we rest side by side

I hear a voice out in the darkness / It moans and whispers through the pines
I know it's my sweetheart a-calling / I hear her through the walls of time


I Want To Sing That Rock'n'Roll

 I want to sing that Rock'n'Roll / I want to 'lectrify my soul
Cause everbody's making a shout / So big and loud, it's drowning me out
I want to sing that Rock'n'Roll

I want to reach that glory land / And I want to shake my Savior's hand
And I want to sing that Rock'n'Roll / I want to 'lectrify my soul
Cause everbody's making a shout / So big and loud, it's drowning me out
I want to sing that Rock'n'Roll

I've been a-trav'lin' near and far / And I want to lay down my old guitar / And I want to sing...


I Am Weary, Let Me Rest

Kiss me mother, kiss your darling / Lay my head upon your breast
Throw your loving arms around me / I am weary, let me rest

Seems the light is swiftly fading / Brighter scenes they do now show
I am standing by the river / Angels wait to take me home

Kiss me mother, kiss your darling / See the pain upon my brow
While I'll soon be with the angels / Fate has doomed my future now

Through the years you've always loved me / And my life you tried to save
But now I shall slumber sweetly / In a deep and lonely grave


Orphan Girl

I am an orphan on God's highway / But I'll share my troubles if you go my way
I have no mother, no father, no sister, no brother / I am an orphan girl

I have had friendships pure and golden / But the ties of kinship, I have not known them
I know no mother, no father, no sister, no brother / I am an orphan girl

But when He calls me I will be able / To meet my family at God's table
I'll meet my mother, my father, my sister, my brother / No more an orphan girl

So blessed Savior, make me willing / And walk beside me until I'm with them
Be my mother, my father, my sister, my brother / I am an orphan girl


Gospel Ship

I have good news to bring / And that is why I sing / All my joys with you I'll share
I'm gonna take a trip on that old gospel ship / And go sailing through the air

Chorus:
I'm gonna take a trip on that old gospel ship / I'm going far beyond the sky
I'm gonna shout and sing until the Heavens ring / When I bid this world good-bye

Oh I can hardly wait, though I know I'll not be late / When I spend all my time in prayer
And when my ship comes in I'm gonna leave this world of sin / And go sailing through the air

If you're ashamed of me you have no right to be / For with Christ I am an heir
If too much fault you find you'll sure be left behind / While I'm sailing through the air


I Saw The Light

I wandered so aimless, life filled with sin / I wouldn't let my dear Savior in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night / Praise the Lord, I saw the light

Chorus:
I saw the light, I saw the light / No more darkness, no more night
Now I'm so happy, no sorrow in sight / Praise the Lord, I saw the light

Just like a blind man I wandered alone / Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like a blind man that God gave back his sight / Praise the Lord, I saw the light

I was a fool to wander astray / For straight is the gate and narrow's the way
Now I done traded the wrong for the right / Praise the Lord, I saw the light


Keep On The Sunny Side

There's a dark and a troubled side of life / There's a bright and a sunny side, too
Though we meet with the darkness and strife / The sunny side we also may view

Chorus:
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side / Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day, it will brighten all our way / If we keep on the sunny side of life

Oh the storm and its fury break today / Crushing hopes that we'd cherish so dear
Clouds and storm will in time pass away / The sun again will shine bright and clear

Let us greet with a song of hope each day / Though the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Savior always / To keep us every one in His care


Poor Wayfaring Stranger

I'm just a poor wayfaring stranger / Trav'lin' through this world of woe
There is no sickness, no toil nor danger / In that bright land to which I go

I'm going there to see my father / And all my loved ones who've gone old
I'm only going over Jordan / I'm only going over home

I know dark clouds will gather round me / I know my way is rough and steep
Yet beauteous fields lie just before me / Where God's redeemed their vigils keep

I'm going there to see my mother / She said she'd meet me when I come
So I'm just going over Jordan  / I'm only going over home


From This Valley

Oh the desert dreams of a river / That will run down to the sea
Like my heart longs for an ocean / To wash down over me

Chorus:
Oh won't you take me from this valley / To the mountain high above
Oh I will pray, pray, pray till I see your smiling face / I will pray (pray, pray) to the one I love

Oh the outcast dreams of acceptance / Just to find pure love's embrace
Like an orphan longs for his mother / Won't you hold me in your grace

Oh the caged bird dreams of a strong wind / That will flow beneath her wings
Like a voice longs for a melody / Oh Jesus, carry me


I'm Working On A Building

Well if I was a gambler / I tell you what I would do / I'd quit my gambling and work on a building too

Chorus:
I'm working on a building, I'm working on a building / I'm working on a building for my Lord, for my Lord

Well if I was a sinner...

Well if I was a preacher ... I'd go on preaching and work on a building too


Just Over In The Glory Land

I've a home prepared where the Saints abide / Just over in the Glory Land
And I long to be by my Savior's side / Just over in the Glory Land

Chorus:
Just over in the Glory Land / I'll join the happy angel band / Just over in the Glory Land
Just over in the Glory Land / There with the mighty host I'll stand / Just over in the Glory Land

I am on my way to those mansions fair...
There to sing God's praise and His glory to share...

What a joyful thought that my Lord I'll see...
And with kindred saved there forever will be...

With the blood-washed throng I will shout and sing...
Glad Hosannas to Christ, our Lord and King...
