Teacher: After they finish saying their parts you finish by saying aloud - 1 Corinthians 8 :3 .
GO TELL IT ON A MOUNTAIN
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 the Savior’s birth.
Down in a lowly manger
The humble Christ was born
And God sent us salvation
That blessèd Christmas morn.

Life holds a span of time for hearts -
To hear a voice so mild
From an obedient child
Chosen as the one
In the temple everyday
They had listened to all he'd say…
But would they learn to keep the way
When this same gentle voice would
Speak the timeless words,
The Lamb of God took delight
In healing the sick and giving sight
To those in need
Of His sweet embrace,
And abundant grace.
His footprints from the past
Are set on earth to last
For those who still
Want to follow this day
And dwell within
His joyful stay.
‘Twas known at the time of his birth
That Christ would rule round this earth.
With tenderness, He taught us to pray
Guiding God's precious children
Into His bountiful,
To sing, laugh and
