    Lyrics

    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

    In Bethlehem, in Israel,
    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

    "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,
    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 Bethlehem straightway
    The Son of God to find.
    O tidings of comfort and joy,
    Comfort and joy
    O tidings of comfort and joy

    And when they came to Bethlehem
    Where our dear Saviour lay,
    They found Him in a manger,
    Where oxen feed on hay;
    His Mother Mary kneeling down,
    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 other doth deface.
    O tidings of comfort and joy,
    Comfort and joy
    O tidings of comfort and joy
