God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen Lyrics

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen lyrics (as most commonly sung):

God rest you merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ our Saviour
Was born upon this 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.

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.

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,
This blessed Babe to find

O tidings of comfort and joy,
comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

But when to Bethlehem they came,
Whereat this Infant lay,
They found Him in a manger,
Where oxen feed on hay;
His mother Mary kneeling,
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.

Angels We Have Heard On High
Auld Lang Syne
Away In A Manger
Deck The Halls
Go Tell It On The Mountain
Good King Wenceslas
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
I Saw Three Ships
In The Bleak Midwinter
It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
Jingle Bells
Jolly Old Saint Nicholas
Joy To The World
Oh Come All Ye Faithful
O Holy Night
Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem
Silent Night
The First Noel
The 12 Days of Christmas
Up On The Housetop
We Three Kings
We Wish You A Merry Christmas
What Child Is This
