Got Tell It On The Mountain, Mahalia Jackson




#MerryChristmas 

and "let my people go" 

"Go Tell It on the Mountain" is an African-American spiritual song, compiled by John Wesley Work, Jr., dating back to at least 1865, that has been sung and recorded by many gospel and secular performers. It is considered a Christmas carol because its original lyrics celebrate the Nativity of Jesus. [...]
According to Religious Studies professor and Civil Rights historian Charles Marsh, it was African American Civil Rights leader Fannie Lou Hamer who combined this song with the spiritual "Go Down Moses," taking the last line of the chorus, "Let my people go" and substituting it in the chorus of "Go Tell it on the Mountain"(Wikipedia).  


Got Tell It On The Mountain 

Go tell it on the mountain

Go tell it on the mountain, that Jesus Christ is born

Halleluya

Go tell it on the mountain
over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
that Jesus Christ is born halleluya (2x)

The sheppard kept their watchin
All over the sheep
He hold the light from heaven
That shone a holy light, everybody

Go tell it on the mountain
over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
that Jesus Christ is born

Born this bright glorious morning
Christ is born today
He came to redeem every sinner
and to wash, their sins away, halleluya

Go tell it on the mountain
over the hills Lord, everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
that Je......sus Christ....... Is....... born
