God rest ye merry gentlemen




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 were gone astray.

O tidings of comfort and joy,
comfort and joy;
O tidings of comfort and joy.


In Bethlehem, in Israel,
this blessèd Babe was born,
And laid within a manger
upon this blessèd 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 blessèd 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 afright
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.


The shepherds at those tidings
rejoiced much in mind,
And left their flocks a-feeding
in tempest, storm and wind,
And went to Bethl’em straightaway
this blessèd 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 Savior 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.


God bless the ruler of this house,
and send him long to reign,
And many a merry Christmas
may live to see again;
Among your friends and kindred
that live both far and near—

That God send you a happy new year,
happy new year,
That God send you a happy new year.
