Go Rest High On That Mountain Lyrics

I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

So, Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son

Oh, how we cried the day you left us
We gathered round your grave to grieve
I wish I could see the angels' faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing

So, Go rest high on that mountain
Son your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son


Go rest high on that mountain
Cause, son your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son

Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son.

This is a beautiful song and it reminds me so much of my father, he was a hard working man and now he is at rest high on a mountain. I tear up every time I hear Vince sing this song. This song has touch many people and has helped them get through the loss of a loved one. Thank You Vince

This song breaks my heart every time I hear it. It was played at my Dad's funeral. Dad was from the mountains of Bell county, Kentucky. And he was laid to rest on top of Pickering Mountain in Kettle Island, Kentucky. Grandma and Grandpa are laid to rest on the same mountain. Daddy always talked of going home. This was the last gift I will ever give him. He is finally back home. I miss he every day. He has been gone for 6 years and I still cry when I hear this song. I miss you Daddy.

I have been searching for a song, to remember my late son, and a reflection of his short life. Hurting is such a big part of our life on earth, but one can get a little comfort with this beautiful son
