God Rest Ye Merry

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

Verse 2

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

Verse 3

“Fear not,” then said the angel,
“Let nothing you affright;
This day is born a Savior
A Babe of glorious might:
See, death and hell and Satan
This child shall put to flight.”

Verse 4

Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
In Christian faith and charity
Each other now embrace,
This holy tide of Christmas
Reveals to us God’s grace.
