Go Rest High on That Mountain

It can feel almost impossible to make peace with the death of those we love, especially sudden death and suicide. Sometimes a song that understands that difficult loss can help.

Go Rest High on That Mountain is a song that carries great comfort to those who are grieving loss.

It was written by Vincent Grant Gill upon the sudden death of his brother, Bob Coen, in 1993. The two were very close.

The song has since become a song of comfort to many loved ones suffering through loss and grieving. It has been performed at memorials and tributes across America.

This version was performed at the Grand Old Opry in 2012, with Vince Gill accompanied by Alison Krauss and Ricky Skaggs. Gill is an American country singer and songwriter who started as frontman to the Pure Prairie League in the 70s and is now a renowned solo artist. Among his most famous recent performances was with Carrie Underwood at the Country Music Awards in 2011 singing How Great Thou Art.
