Go, tell it on the mountain

Carol – Go tell it on the mountains – Lyrics

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 wandering flocks by night,
Behold, from out of heaven,
There shone a holy light. Refrain

And lo, when they had seen it,
They all bowed down and prayed;
They travelled on together
To where the babe was laid. Refrain

When I was a seeker,
I sought both night and day,
I asked the Lord to help me
And he showed me the way. Refrain

He made me a watchman
Upon a city wall,
And, if I am a Christian,
I am the least of all. Refrain
