God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman

God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Savior
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan’s power
When we had 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 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

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;
A holy God has come to us
And shown us so much grace
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

Christ the heavenly man
Born to feel our pain
He came to free us from ourselves
Unite us in his name

God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Savior
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan’s power
When we had gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

“Fear not then,” says the Angel,
O men, be not afraid
You have with you a Savior
He’ll live in you each day
He frees all those who hope in Him
With love and power and grace
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy
