God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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 pow'r
when we were gone astray

Chorus
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

Chorus

"fear not," then said the angel
"let nothing you affright
this day is born a Savior
of virtue, power, and might
so frequently to vanquish all
the friends of Satan quite"

Chorus

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

Chorus

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

Chorus

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 others doth deface

Chorus
