Go forth upon thy journey, Christian soul!

And so Billy Graham passes from this earthy plane of existence to a heavenly one. Doubtless, he would echo Dwight L. Moody:

"Some day you will read in the papers, 'Billy Graham of Montreat is dead.' Don't you believe a word of it!

At that moment I shall be more alive than I am now;
I shall have gone up higher, that is all,
out of this old clay tenement into a house that is immortal --
a body that death cannot touch, that sin cannot taint;
a body fashioned like unto His glorious body.
I was born of the flesh in 1918.
I was born of the Spirit in 1934.
That which is born of the flesh may die.
That which is born of the Spirit will live forever."
Few 20th century evangelists have had such a profound impact on the global stage.
