…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…
”Go Rest High”-Vince Gill
