"GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN"

Chorus 1
Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere.
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

Verse 1
While shepherds kept their watching
O’er silent flocks by night, [all night]
Behold throughout the heavens
There shone a holy light.
Shine on me Your light and I will ...

Chorus 2
Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere.
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.

Verse 2
The shepherds feared and trembled,
When lo! Above the earth, way up yonder,
Rang out the angels’ chorus [Alleluya!]
That hailed the Savior’s birth.
Oh, that is why I sing ...

Chorus 3 [a cappella]
Go tell it on the mountain [Tell it everywhere!]
Over the hills and everywhere, [Everywhere!]
Go tell it on the mountain [Tell it on the mountain, yeah!]
That Jesus Christ is born.

Interlude
[Go everywhere.]
[Go tell it everywhere.]
[Go, go, go,]
[Go tell it!]

Verse 3
Down in a lowly manger, yeah,
The humble Christ was born,
And God sent us salvation
That blessed Christmas morn’. [It’s time to get up and go ...]

Chorus 4
Go tell it on the mountain, [Tell it, children!]
Over the hills and everywhere, [Everywhere!] [Come on, tell it!]
Go tell it on the mountain, [tell ’em that]
That Jesus [Jesus] Christ [that Christ] is born, [is born.]


[Tell it on the mountain.]
Tell ’em that the Child is born.
[Tell it on the mountain.]
Tell ’em that He’s the light,
[Tell it on the mountain.]
Not just a baby born that night.
[Tell it on the mountain.]
It’s time to rise up and tell it.
[Tell it, tell it.]
[Tell it on the mountain.]
[Tell it on the mountain.] [Tell it, tell it!]
[Tell it on the mountain.]
[Tell it on the mountain.] [Tell it, tell it!]
[Tell it on the mountain.]
