No other song, I believe, has had an impact on country music, in the last 30 years, than this one. I don't think he wrote it to be a song for funerals. But, I believe I've heard it at least 75% of the funerals I've attended. Ricky Skaggs and Patty Loveless are flawless in their harmony work. A true song for the ages. It will be listened to long after we're gone. I would put this song in the Top 10 country songs of all time.

This is the song for anyone who has lost a loved one. It brings me to tears every time I hear Vince sing it. The beauty of the song and his voice, is represented here so beautifully! In th south, this is one of the most often played songs when someone leaves this world; at least it was in my day.

This is positively the most moving spiritual country music song I have ever heard. It sounds as if it was written long ago, and has an authentic traditional sound. Anyone who has been troubled in this life is reminded of the rest and peace that will be foound because of the love of the Father and his only Son, Jesus. I would like to have this song played at my own memorial service someday:
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. Amen.

This song is probably the best ever written. What an honor to be thought as. What an honor to know you did things right in this life even though we all are troubled. It shows our hearts when we give thanks for a person being in our lives.and I believe they hear that cry from Heaven when they hear this song.

People either love or hate Vince Gill it seems; his voice is quite distinct and easily picked out. BUT if you like his voice and you like christian music, this should be in your mp3 player, on the computer, in the car, on your phone. A classic hymn remade so very well and the first time I heard it, It brought me to tears. ADORE

Vince Gill has one of the best male voices ever. The lyrics are moving & knowing that he wrote this for one of his family members who had recently passed gives it special meaning. Use of the violin complemented nicely so I gave it 4 stars because with such a well written & performed song I think it would have been nearly perfect if the released version would have had a choir supporting the background chorus.
