Go Tell It On The Mountain - Lyrics, Hymn Meaning and Story

Joining with the #Five Minute Friday group of writers today to free-write on a one word prompt. Today’s prompt is: Cancel.

So what I want to emphatically say, that despite all the rumours – Christmas IS NOT cancelled! No matter what stage of Lockdown or restrictions we are in at the time Christmas is still NOT cancelled.!!!!

We still have the good news to share, we are still commanded to ‘go and tell’, and if anything, and at such a time as this we should indeed be shouting it from the rooftops, from the mountains that the Saviour has come!

At what may be bleak times, then we hold out the light of the gospel, we tell and show of a Saviour who came to seek and save the lost, the weary and hurt. We hold out hope and light and tell of the good news and we show it, we shine it, we bring infectious joy to it so that the reality of it is both felt and telt* (Scots word for told).

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
Our Jesus Christ is born

  1. The poobahs think they can dissolve
    our trust and faith in God
    that secular might then evolve,
    but their plan is deeply flawed,
    for we need no cathedrals,
    nor bright-robed singing choirs;
    these are but ephemeral
    and their loss will light no pyres
    on which a forlorn Gospel’s burned;
    oh, no, and have no fear,
    for by oppression hearts are turned
    and their resolve comes clear
    to let the Good News still resound
    from hiding-places underground.
