I usually manage to include "Go Tell It on the Mountain" somewhere in my repertoire during the Christmas season, and for years I thought it needed a special "exclamation / proclamation" ending. I wrote "I'm Gonna Tell It" in 2005, and immediately taught it to our worship team at Victory Fellowship Church in Fulton, MO. They always did such an outstanding job on this song, and I would like to dedicate this recording to each of them for the part they played in bringing this song to life!
Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born!
1. While shepherds kept their watching
O'er silent flocks by night
Behold throughout the heavens
There shone a holy light
2. The shepherds feared and trembled
When lo above the earth
Rang out the angel chorus
That hailed our Savior's birth
3. Down in a lowly manger
The humble Christ was born
And brought us God's salvation
That blessed Christmas morn
I'm gonna tell it, tell it on the mountain
I'm gonna tell it everywhere I go
That Jesus Christ is born!
