(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.
