I’ll Fly Away

Verse 1

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

Chorus

I’ll fly away O glory I’ll fly away

When I die hallelujah by and by

I’ll fly away

Verse 2

When the shadows of this life have grown

I’ll fly away

Like a bird from prison bars has flown

I’ll fly away

Verse 3

Just a few more weary days and then

I’ll fly away

To a land where joys shall never end

I’ll fly away

Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)

Verse 1

Amazing grace how sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost but now I’m found

Was blind but now I see

Verse 2

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear

And grace my fears relieved

How precious did that grace appear

The hour I first believed

Chorus

My chains are gone I’ve been set free

My God my Savior has ransomed me

And like a flood His mercy rains

Unending love amazing grace

Verse 3

The Lord has promised good to me

His word my hope secures

He will my shield and portion be

As long as life endures

Chorus

My chains are gone I’ve been set free

My God my Savior has ransomed me

And like a flood His mercy rains

Unending love amazing grace  

Verse 4

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow

The sun forbear to shine

But God who called me here below

Will be forever mine

Will be forever mine

You are forever mine
