he Verlander Family puts their bluegrass skills on display with this incredible performance of ‘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.
“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”
Today, The Verlander Family is putting their own spin on their beloved song as they sit on the front porch. This father and his 2 daughters are truly giving all the glory to God with this beautiful rendition of ‘I’ll Fly Away.’
On YouTube, the family wrote, “It’s a blessed day when Dad gets to strum his guitar on the front porch and sing an old gospel song with his beautiful daughters.”
What a blessing to watch this family come together and sing of His many blessings!
Judges 5:3 “Hear, O you kings; give ear, O you princes; I, even I, will sing to the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.”
