"Go Tell It On The Mountain" as written by and Paul ...
Virgin Mary had a one son,
Oh, glory hallelujah,
Oh, pretty little baby,
Glory be to the new born King.

"Well, Mary how you call that pretty little baby,
Oh, pretty little baby,
Oh, pretty little baby,
Glory be to the new born King".

"Well, some call Him Jesus, think I'll call Him Savior
Oh, I think I'll call Him Savior
Oh, I think I'll call Him Savior,
Glory be to the new born King".

Riding from the East there came three wise man,
Oh, came three wise man,
Oh, came three wise man,
Glory to be the new born King.

Said, "Follow that star, you'll surely find the baby,
Oh, surely find the baby,
Oh, surely find the baby,
Glory be to the new born King".

Well, the Virgin Mary had a one son,

    Song MeaningI would like to say something particularly about the lyrics below:
    Down in a lowly manger
    Our humble Christ was born
    And God send us salvation,
    That blessed Christmas morn:
    Go, Tell It On The Mountain,
    Over the hills and everywhere;
    Go, Tell It On The Mountain
    That Jesus Christ is born
    Most Christians believe that Jesus was born on Christmas Day. However, as an Adventist Christian, who believe that there is no record of the exact date Jesus was born, I must not even sing this song because it clearly indicates that the song is saying that Jesus was born on Christmas Day. If I don't believe that He did, I should not be singing this song at all. Christmas is a pagan fabricated religious day and totally contradict what says in John 1
    In the beginning the Word already existed.
    The Word was with God,
    and the Word was God.
    2 He existed in the beginning with God.
    3 God created everything through him,
    and nothing was created except through him.
    4 The Word gave life to everything that was created,
    and his life brought light to everyone.
    5 The light shines in the darkness,
    and the darkness can never extinguish it.
    Jesus is the beginning and the end so how can anybody put a birth date for Him.
