Go Tell It On the Mountain

We like this song because it shows the excited response of a Christian to Christmas. It is the moment when you find out you are loved by God, that He has sent salvation in Jesus, His Son! Just like the shepherds at Jesus’ birth, you can’t help but tell everyone about the hope that has come for you! You feel like shouting it from a mountain so everyone can hear!


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
o'er 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 angel chorus
that hailed our Saviour's birth!

Down in a lonely manger
the humble Christ was born,
and God sent our salvation
that blessed Christmas morn.
