216. Go, Tell It on the Mountain

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. (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 lowly manger
Our humble Christ was born,
And God sent us salvation
That blessed Christmas morn. (Refrain)
