God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen Lyrics

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

In Bethlehem, in Israel, 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, 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 virtue far and 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, comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

But when to Bethlehem they came, where our dear Saviour
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 other doth deface.
O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy
