(388) Go Tell it on the Mountain
Refrain: Go tell it on the mountain, Over the hills and ev’rywhere;; 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. Refrain.
2 The shepherds feared and trembled When lo, above the earth Rang out the angel chorus That hailed our Savior’s birth. Refrain.
3 Down in a lonely manger The humble Christ was born; And God sent us salvation That blessèd Christmas morn. Refrain.
