God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ the Savior
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's pow'r
When we had gone astray

O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy!
O tidings of comfort and joy!

From God our Heav'nly Father
A blessed angel came
And unto certain shepherds
Bro't 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!

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ the Savior
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's pow'r
When we had gone astray

O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy!
O tidings of comfort and joy!
