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 sat a-watching their silent flocks by night,
there shone throughout the heavens a great and glorious light.
Go, tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere,
go, tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born!

2. The shepherds feared and trembled when, high above the earth,
rang out the angel chorus that hailed our Saviour's birth.
Go, tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere,
go, tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born!
