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 Savior's birth.
Down in a lowly manger the humble Christ was born,
And brought us God's salvation that blessed Christmas morn.
