“When they had seen Him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this Child,
and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.”
– Luke 2:17-18

Go, Tell It on the Mountain

Chorus:
Go, tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and ev’rywhere;
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born!

Verse 1:
While shepherds kept their watching
O’er silent flocks by night,
Behold throughout the heavens
There shone a holy light.

Chorus

Verse 2:
The shepherds feared and trembled
When lo! above the earth
Rang out the angel chorus
That hailed our Savior’s birth.

Chorus

Verse 3:
Down in a lowly manger
The humble Christ was born,
And God sent us salvation
That blessed Christmas morn.

Chorus
