TEXT

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!

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!

"Fear not then," said the angel, "Let nothing you affright, 
This day is born a Saviour 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!

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 the Son of God to find. 
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!
