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.
2. ’Twas in a humble manger That Jesus Christ was born; The God of all creation Became a child that morn.
3. He came to die for sinners, To take away our sin; That we may know salvation, And be complete in Him.
