  • God rest you 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.

    (Oh tidings of comfort and joy),
    (Comfort and joy),
    (Oh tidings of comfort and joy)
    (Comfort and joy)

    In Bethlehem in Jewry,
    This blessed Babe was born
    And laid within a manger
    Upon this blessed 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 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} Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
