GOD REST YE MERRY GENTLEMEN

God rest ye merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ our Saviour,
Was born on Christmas Day:
To save us all from Satan's power,
When we were gone astray:
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

From God, our Heavenly Father,
A blessed angel came,
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tiding of the same:
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by name:
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

"Fear not, then," said the angel
"Let nothing you affright,
This day is born a Savior
Of a pure virgin bright:
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan's power and might."
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

Now to the Lord sing praises
All you within this place,
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace:
This holy tide of Christmas
Doth bring redeeming grace,
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.
