GO AND TELL

DAY 16

GO AND TELL

“Go, Tell it on the Mountain” has a simple message.  Go and tell!  The message that we take when we go and tell, to those who will listen, is more than a story about the birth of a child.  The song says,

 

Down in a lowly manger

Our humble Christ was born

And God send us salvation,

That blessed Christmas morn

 

God sent to us salvation through his Son, Jesus Christ.  That is why we are compelled to go.  That is the message that we proclaim from the mountain top.

Now if you happen to live in central Illinois where I grew up, do not think that you are off the hook.  No, there are no mountains in central Illinois, but that is not the point.  The point is the message is meant to be proclaimed to everyone in every place.

This Advent season, find your voice and go and tell the message of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

 

GO, TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN

 

While shepherds kept their watching

Over 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.

 

Down in a lowly manger

Our humble Christ was born

And God send us salvation,

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.

 

When I am a seeker,

I seek both night and day;

I seek the Lord to help me,

And He shows me the way:

Go, Tell It On The Mountain,

Over the hills and everywhere;

Go, Tell It On The Mountain

That Jesus Christ is born.

 

He made me a watchman

Upon the city wall,

And if I am a Christian,

I am the least of all.

Go, Tell It On The Mountain,

Over the hills and everywhere;

Go, Tell It On The Mountain

That Jesus Christ is born.
