our musical advent calendar, day 24

Inspired by Pinterest, Anna wanted to do an advent calendar. And inspired by Advent Conspiracy, she wanted to make it about presence, not presents. Ian had a brilliant idea to use music. We each picked out some of our favorite Christmas songs and will be counting down with festive tunes.

day 24. "Go Tell It on the Mountain" - David Crowder Band, Oh For Joy


I didn't know "Go Tell It on the Mountain" until it showed up in one of my piano lessons. I enjoyed playing the song, but once I moved on to the next piano level, it fell off my radar. Until I heard the David Crowder Band version. It's fresh and inventive without losing the heart. And I’m so excited to listen to this tomorrow. Go tell it on the mountain: it’s Christmas day, and Jesus Christ is born.
—Anna

(Go tell it on the mountain)

While shepherds were out watching
Their 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.

It's Christmas day.
(Go tell it on the mountain.)
It's Christmas day.

Shepherds feared and trembled
When, lo, above the earth
Rang out the angels' chorus
That hailed the Savior's birth.

Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere.
Go tell it on the mountain,
That Jesus Christ is born.

It's Christmas day.
(Go tell it on the mountain.)
Oh, It's Christmas day.

Down in a lowly manger,
The humbled Christ was born,
And God sent 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.

It's Christmas day.
(Go tell it on the mountain.)
It's Christmas day.
Oh, It's Christmas day.
(Go tell it on the mountain.)
Oh, It's Christmas day, yeah.
Oh, It's Christmas day.
(Go tell it on the mountain.)

(Go tell it on the mountain.)
(It's Christmas day)
(Go tell it on the mountain.)
