'I'll Fly Away' Classic Hymn From Jimmy Fortune, Bradley Walker And More

Christian artists Jimmy Fortune, Bradley Walker, Mike Rogers, Ben Isaacs come together for an incredible performance of ‘I’ll Fly Away.’ This classic hymn is always a welcome reminder that, one day, we will be reunited with our Father in Heaven.


“Some bright morning when this life is over, I'll fly away
To that home on God's celestial shore, 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’ was written in 1929 by Albert E. Brumley. It was published in 1932 and became a hymn frequently performed in church services all over the world.

In fact, the song has even been called one of the most recorded gospel songs of all time with notable covers from Alison Krauss and Alan Jackson.

Albert was picking cotton on his family farm when the words to the classic hymn came into his mind. From that moment, it took Albert three more years to actually complete the iconic song.


Today, the incredible ensemble of Jimmy Fortune, Bradley Walker, Mike Rogers, Ben Isaacs are in Columbia, Tennessee to belt out these words that we all know and love.

“Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away
To a land where joy shall never end
I'll fly away”

Revelation 21:4 “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
