The Song “I’ll Fly Away”

Joey and Rory Feek recorded one of the most recorded gospel songs in history, “I’ll Fly Away.” When listening to the song, it brings more peace and good feeling. The narrator focuses on seeing the good things that will happen after our life here on earth. Instead of fearing death and looking at it as the end to everything, the narrator sees it as the beginning. “I’ll Fly Away” brings more hope and positive outlook to death, instead of fearing death. Most of us do not look forward to the day we are going to die but actually, that is the day we are finally going to meet God and live a beautiful and peaceful life.

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”” –John 11:25-26
