GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN

GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN,
OVER THE HILLS AND EVERYWHERE.
GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN,
THAT JESUS CHRIST WAS BORN.
T'WAS IN A LOWLY MANGER,
THAT JESUS CHRIST WAS BORN;
THE LORD SENT DOWN AN ANGEL,
THAT BRIGHT AND GLORIOUS MORN.

WHEN I WAS A SINNER,
I PRAYED BOTH NIGHT AND DAY;
I ASKED THE LORD TO HELP ME,
AND HE SHOWED ME THE WAY.

WHEN I WAS A SEEKER,
I SOUGHT BOTH NIGHT AND DAY;
I ASKED THE LORD TO HELP ME,
AND HE TAUGHT ME HOW TO PRAY.

HE MADE ME A WATCHMAN,
UPON THE CITY WALL;
AND IF I AM A CHRISTIAN
I AM THE LEAST OF ALL.
