Proclaim the salvation of the Lord! Or maybe we should we say, “Go tell it on the mountain!”

BibleGateway: Jeremiah 31:10-14

ESV Text: Jeremiah 31:10-14



KJV Text:

The section starts at about 1:31 and ends at about 2:35

     10 Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. 11 For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he. 12 Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all. 13 Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow. 14 And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the LORD.(KJV)


Hymn: WS 706:
Go Tell It on the Mountain

Hymnary.org

1. 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. 

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

2. 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. 

3. Down in a lowly manger 
The humble 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.
