Scripture: Luke 2:8-20
Theme: Christmas

    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 God sent us salvation
    That blessed Christmas morn.
