Bad Me

Okay I admit it I am bad. It is not even halfway through the 24 Days of Christmas on The Great Faith Adventure and updating is getting interesting because I remember at the last minute that I am supposed to update. But never fear - tomorrow's will be bright and early since I have church and then a concert to go to in the evening :)

Today's song on the 24 Days of Christmas on The Great Faith Adventure is Go Tell It on the Mountain. Al Jarreau is singing it and yep it sort of has a Moonlighting feel to it lol. Wow I miss that show - I need to see if I can get it on dvd. I loved David and Maddie and Agnes Dipesto (loved how she answered the phone lol). Great now I want to go out and buy Moonlighting on dvd :)

Go Tell It on the Mountain is an African-American spiritual that was written by John W. Work. It dates back to at least 1865 and it has been sung and recorded by many gospel and secular performers. It is considered a Christmas carol because its original lyric celebrates the Nativity of Jesus: "Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere; go tell it on the mountain, that Jesus Christ is born."

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
Over 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

The 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

Down in a lowly manger
The humble Christ was born
And God sent us salvation
That bless├Ęd Christmas morn

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