167. 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 the Savior's birth: [Refrain]

3 Down in a lonely manger
the humble Christ was born,
and God sent us salvation
that blessed Christmas morn. [Refrain]
