Mary had a baby
Mary had a baby
Mary had a baby
People, keep a comin' and the train done gone

Laid him in a manger
Laid him in a manger
Laid him in a manger, oh lord
People, keep a comin' and the train done gone

Shepherds came to see him
Shepherds came to see him
Shepherds came to see him, oh lord
People, keep a comin' and the train done gone

Named him king jesus
Named him king jesus
Named him king jesus, oh lord
People, keep a comin' and the train done gone

When I was a seeker
I sought both night and day
And I asked the lord to help me
And he showed me the way

Chorus:
Oh, go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That jesus christ is born

He made me a watchman, upon the city wall
And if I am a christian
I am the least of all, yeahyeah

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That jesus christ is born

Chorus (4x)
