    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.

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

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

    --- Instrumental ---

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

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

      This is one of the most moving and beautiful songs I have ever heard. I sang this at several memorial services and funerals. It's a tough one, but well worth the sentiment. Thanks Vince for such a beautiful and meaningful songs.

      the only reason i hate this song, is that it was played at a friend of mines funeral. and to this day, whenever i think about michael's funeral, thuis song plays in my head. it's very powerful, and moving, but i can't help but want to cry when i hear it.

      Beautiful, beautiful song. I requested this be played on my local radio station for a friend I just lost due to a drug overdose. She was only 16-years-old.

      Thank you, Vince, for such a healing song.
