(Traditional)

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember christ our savior
Was born on christmas day
To save us all from satans power
When we were gone astray
Oh tiding of comfort and joy

From God our heavenly father
The blessed angel came
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same
How that in bethlehem was born
The son of God by name
Oh tidings of comfort and joy(repeat)

Fear not said the angel
Let nothing you affright
This day is born a savior
Of the pure virgin bright
To free all those who trust in him
From satans power and might
Oh tidings of comfort and joy (repeat)

And when they came to bethlehem
Where our dear savior lay
They found him in the manger
Where oxen feed on hay
His mother mary kneeled down
And to the lord did pray
Oh tidings of comfort and joy (repeat)

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember christ our savior
Was born on christmas day
