I'll Fly Away
Has it been that long
Since I sat upon your knee?
You sang to me so sweetly.
I hugged you happily.

Your voice was so strong,
As you sang, "Oh, Glad Day."
You talked about Heaven.
You said, "I'll fly away."

I never really understood
Just what you tried to say.
I only knew I loved you.
I didn't want you to go away.

"Papa loves you, honey,"
Was the last thing you said to me.
Oh, glad day and you flew away.
I wondered why I didn't see.

One glad morning, when his life was o'er
My papa flew away
To his home, on God's celestial shore.
Lord, my papa flew away.
