As a black person, grew up listening to AND playing (bass) his music for our church choir. Of course, this style of Gospel was NOT accepted early on, but eventually became the standard n many black churches. Really love their music.

I watched a program earlier this year on his life and music. I really enjoyed learning more about this talented man. He was a rare talent and he will be missed.

Walter Hawkins
Goin' Up Yonder lyrics


Lyrics to Goin' Up Yonder :
If you want to know
Where I'm going?
Where I'm going, soon

If anybody ask you
Where I'm going
Where I'm going soon

I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
To be with my Lord

I can take the pain
The heartaches they bring
The comfort in knowing
I'll soon be gone

As God gives me grace
I'll run this race
Until I see my Savior
Face to face

I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
To be with my Lord

I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
I'm goin' up yonder
To be with my Lord
