Go tell it on the mountains
Over hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountains
That Jesus Christ is born
Mary had a baby
(oh Lord)
Mary had a baby
(oh my Lord)
Mary had a baby
(oh Lord)
People keep a coming and the train done gone
Laid him in a manger
(oh Lord)
Laid him in a manger
(oh my Lord)
Laid him in a manger
(oh Lord)
People keep a coming and the train done gone
Shepherds came to see him
(oh Lord)
Shepherds came to see him
(oh my Lord)
Shepherds came to see him
(oh Lord)
People keep a coming and the train done gone
Named him King Jesus
(oh Lord)
Named him King Jesus
(oh my Lord)
Named him King Jesus
(oh Lord)
People keep a coming 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
Oh go tell it on the mountains
Over hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountains
That Jesus Christ is born
He made me a watchman
Up on the city wall
And if I am a christian
I am the least of all
Go tell it on the mountains
Over hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountains
That Jesus Christ is born
