Christian Family Band Performs Bluegrass Cover Of ‘I’ll Fly Away’

The Verlander family performs a unique bluegrass cover of the classic hymn ‘I’ll Fly Away’.


Written in 1929, the hymn by Albert E. Brumley was published in 1932. It has become one of the most recorded Christian hymns of all time. It also appears in many hymnals where it is listed under the topics of eternal life, heaven and acceptance. It is a standard song at bluegrass jam sessions and is often performed at funerals.

The Verlanders – a father and his two daughters, sits on their front porch, strumming their stringed instruments and sing the song, giving praise to God.

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 (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).
When the shadows of this life have gone,
I’ll fly away;
Like a bird from prison bars has flown,
I’ll fly away (I’ll fly away)

Just a few more weary days and then,
I’ll fly away;
To a land where joy shall never end,
I’ll fly away (I’ll fly away)

Sing to the Lord with the harp, With the harp and the sound of a psalm, With trumpets and the sound of a horn; Shout joyfully before the Lord, the King. Psalms 98:5‭-‬6 (NKJV)
