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

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
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

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 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.

Lost a wonderful uncle yesterday. Was asked by family to sing this song at his funeral, will be tough. I know that he believed in Jesus Christ as his savior and will go rest high on that mountain.

My beloved chocolate lab mix Herbie Husker had to be put down last night. I was there and held his head and sent him on his way to that mountain. I cried and cried and am still crying love u Herbie!
