Refrain:
Go, tell it on the mountains, over the hills and ev'rywhere.
Go, tell it on the mountains that Jesus Christ is born.

1.
While shepherds kept their watching o'er silent flocks by night,
Behold, throughout the heavens there shone a holy light.
Refrain

2.
The shepherds feared and trembled when lo, above the earth
Rang out the angel chorus, that hailed our Saviour's birth!
Refrain

3.
Down in a lowly manger the humble Christ was born,
and brought us God's salvation. That blessed Christmas morn.
Refrain

Refrain:
Va' dillo alle montagne!Ditto alle genti d'ogni terra,
Va' dillo alle montagne! Ch'è nato il Salvator

1.
Pastori che restate, sui monti a vigilar,
la Luce voi vedete, la stella di Gesù
Refrain

2.
In una mangiatoia un bimbo aspetterà,
che l'uomo ancor ritrovi la strada dell'amor.
Refrain

3.
Se il nostro canto è immenso, pastore non tremar,
noi Angeli cantiamo, è nato il Salvator.
Refrain

Refrain
Va, dis-le sur la montagne par-delà les collines et partout
Va, dis-le sur la montagne : Jésus-Christ est né.

1.
Les bergers craignaient et tremblaient quand soudain, dans les airs
Sonna le choeur des anges, criant la naissance du Sauveur!

2.
Dans une simple mangeoire l'humble Christ naquit,
Et nous apporta le salut, en ce matin béni de Noël.

3.
Les bergers étaient à garder leur troupeau sous les étoiles
L'ange du Seigneur est venu brillant d'une lumière sainte.

Variante
Quand j'étais un chercheur, je cherchais nuit et jour
J'ai demandé de l'aide au Seigneur et il m'a guidé.

Il m'a dit de veiller sur le mur de la ville
Et si je suis un chrétien je suis le dernier de tous.
