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'
Look 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

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

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

    Jesus came to earth,to give eternal life to all,who take him,as their savior... He faced the devil,and the pain of crucifixion,for all of us,and then went to heaven,to be with the father...

    My ex-husband is a wonderful man who is dying of cancer. I know that i can't do anything to help him but i know him better than anyone since i was married to him for 25 years, and this song speak about the life he has led. I pray that he will give his heart to jesus before he is called out of this world. He has known his share of trouble and pain but i know that he is deserves a better life than he has led here on earth.

    To me this song was such a beatuy. Eveytime i listen 2 it i almost cry. It makes me think of my father and who his life is hard and how he this fights on. Vince gill was sweet 2 write this song. My father wants someone 2 play it at his funeral. I love this song much but, it will make ya cry at times.
