God rest you merry gentlemen

God rest you merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ our Savior,
Was born on Christmas Day
To save us all from Satan’s pow’r
When we were gone astray.
Refrain:
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy,
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy.
From God our heav’nly 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.
“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.”
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.
