Summer Worship, Camp Meeting Style

In July and August, my church modifies the worship services to reflect a style similar to Methodist Camp Meetings. They've been doing this for a few years, and I always enjoy worshiping in this style for a few months of the year. Today was the first Camp Meeting style service of the year. It involves lots of singing. And it's singing the old-style southern gospel songs, which are some of my favorite.

Today, one of the songs we sung was I'll Fly Away, which I absolutely love. It was somewhat odd that it was accompanied by organ, but the choir director hopped on the piano by the second verse, which helped give it a more gospel feel.
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, O glory, I'll fly away.
When I die, hallelujah, by and by, I'll fly away.
I think I might have to pull my mandolin out this afternoon and play it a few times.
