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

While shepherds kept their watching
Over silent flocks by night
Behold throughout the heavens
There shone a holy light.

The shepherds feared and trembled,
When lo! above the earth,
Rang out the angels chorus
That hailed the Savior’s birth.

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

Many have added verses over the years. Here are three more new verses by Bob and Kathy Stenson:

Oh Once I was a sinner,
In bondage day and night.
I asked the Lord to save me,
And He showed me the light.

The mind is a deceiver,
And many are deceived,
But Jesus came to lead us,
And all who have believed.

More holiness and power
than anyone has dreamed,
This holiness and power
belongs to the redeemed.
