Sing We All of Christmas: Go, Tell it on the Mountain

Christmas is all about evangelism.
Jesus came to save me, and He came to save you, and He wanted us to know.
That we can have victory over our sins.  That He will come back for us.  That He paid it all on the cross.  That "Surely He hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrow." 
That we can come unto Him to find rest.
From sin.  From grief.  From pain.
If you have been rescued from these things, and you know of someone still suffering from them, under the crushing load, don't you have every desire to tell?
Go, tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere:
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born!
While shepherds kept their watching
O'er silent flocks by night,
Behold throughout the heavens
There shone a holy light.
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 God sent us salvation
That blessed Christmas morn.
