Refrain: Go, tell it on the mountain, Over the hills and everywhere 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. The shepherds feared and trembled, When lo! above the earth, Rang out the angels chorus That hailed the Savior’s birth.

3. Down in a lowly manger Our humble Christ was born And God sent us salvation That blessed Christmas morn.

Alternate stanzas: 1. When I was a seeker, I sought both night and day; I asked the Lord to help me, And He showed me the way.

2. He made me a watchman, Upon the city wall; And if I am a Christian, I am the least of all.
