Go, tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere:
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born!

  1. While shepherds kept their watching
    O’er silent flocks by night,
    Behold throughout the heavens
    There shone a holy light.
  2. The shepherds feared and trembled
    When lo! Above the earth
    Rang out the angel chorus
    That hailed our Savior’s birth.
  3. Down in a lowly manger
    The humble Christ was born,
    And brought us God’s salvation
    That blessed Christmas morn.
