"Go Tell It On The Mountain" as written by and Paul ...
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
Over silent flocks by night
Behold throughout the heavens
There shone a holy light

Go, tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

The shepherds feared and trembled
When lo! above the earth
Rang out the angels chorus
That hailed the savior's birth

Go, tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

Down in a lowly manger
The humble Christ was born
And god sent 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.

    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.
