(Sinatra version of lyrics, arr. Jack Halloran)
 
Go, go, tell everybody,
Go, go tel, tell everybody, go
Go tell, tell everybody go,
Go tell, tell everybody go,
 
Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
That Jesus Christ is born.
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
For 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.
Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
That Jesus Christ is born.
 
The shepherds stirred and trembled,
When lo, above the earth,
Rang out the angels calling,
That hail our 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.
Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
That Jesus Christ is born.
 
Tell me the lowly saviour,
A humble cloth was worn.
And then there was the vision,
And on the crib was born.
 
Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
That Jesus Christ is born.
You better go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
That Jesus Christ is born.
That Jesus Christ is born.
That Jesus Christ is born.


(Simon and Garfunkel version of lyrics)

Go Tell It On The Mountain
Hallelujah!
Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
Jesus Christ is born

Down the lonely manger
The humble Christ was born
And God sent salvation
That blessed Christmas morn

(repeat chorus)

While shepherds kept their watch
O'er silent flocks by night
Behold throughout the heavens
There shown a holy light

(repeat chorus and 1st verse) 


(Garth Brooks version of lyrics, arr. Garth Brooks)

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and far away
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

The shepherds all were watching
Over their sheep at night
When a guiding star shone from heaven
And the followed that holy light

Got tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born
They found a lovely manger
Where the humble Christ was born
And God sent out salvation
On 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

He brought with Him forgiveness
He live to show us the way
He came to redeem all creation
And to wash all our sins away

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