Mountain

Luke 2:11
"For unto you is born this day in the city of David
a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."

            Chorus
            Go tell it on the mountain,
            Over the hills and ev'rywhere;
            Go tell it on the mountain,
            That Jesus Christ is born!

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

            Chorus
            Go tell it on the mountain,
            Over the hills and ev'rywhere;
            Go tell it on the mountain,
            That Jesus Christ is born!

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

            Chorus
            Go tell it on the mountain,
            Over the hills and ev'rywhere;
            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.

            Chorus
            Go tell it on the mountain,
            Over the hills and ev'rywhere;
            Go tell it on the mountain,
            That Jesus Christ is born!

          'Twas in a humble manger
          That Jesus Christ was born;
          The God of all creation
          Became a child that morn.

            Chorus
            Go tell it on the mountain,
            Over the hills and ev'rywhere;
            Go tell it on the mountain,
            That Jesus Christ is born!
