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.
