This popular American carol was created around the turn of the 19th century. Some historians have linked it to a Nashville composer, Frederick J. Work.

While shepherds kept their watching O'er 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 angel chorus That hailed our Saviour's birth.

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