Go tell it on the mountain, Over the hills and everywhere;
Go tell it on the mountain That Jesus Christ is born.
While shepherds kept their watching O’er silent flocks by night,
Behold throughout the heavens There shone a holy light.
The shepherds feared and trembled When lo above the earth,
Rang out the angel chorus, That hailed our Savior’s birth
Down in a lowly manger the humble Christ was born
And God sent us salvation, that blessed Christmas morn
