Go Tell it on the Mountain

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
While shepherds kept their watching
O'er silent flocks by night,
Behold, thro'-out 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 Savior's birth.
Down in a lowly manger
The humble Christ was born,
And God sent us salvation
That blessed Christmas morn.
