"Go Tell It on the Mountain" is an African-American spiritual, mainly considered a Christmas carol, written by John W. Work dating back to at least 1865 that has been sung and recorded by many gospel and secular performers. Sawyer Brown recorded the song for their 2008 Christmas album, Rejoice.



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 silent flocks by night,
Behold, throughout 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!

Chorus (3x)
