God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

(Traditional)


      God rest ye merry gentlemen,
      Let nothing you dismay.
      Remember 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.

      In Bethlehem in Jewry,
      This blessed Babe was born,
      And laid within a manger,
      Upon this blessed morn;
      The which His mother Mary
      Did nothing take in scorn:
      O tidings of comfort and joy.
      O tidings of comfort and joy.

      From God our heavenly Father,
      A blessed angel came,
      And unto certain shepherds,
      Brought tidings 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 Saviour,
      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.

      The shepherds at those tidings
      Rejoiced much in mind,
      And left their flocks a-feeding
      In tempest, storm, and wind,
      And went to Bethlehem straightway
      This blessed Babe to find:
      O tidings of comfort and joy
      O tidings of comfort and joy.

      But when to Bethlehem they came,
      Wherat this Infant lay,
      They found Him in a manger,
      Where oxen feed on hay;
      His mother Mary kneeling,
      Unto the Lord did pray:
      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,
      All others doth deface,
      O tidings of comfort and joy,
      Comfort and joy,
      O tidings of comfort and joy.
