The Words or Lyrics To God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen:

God rest ye merry, gentlemen

Let nothing you dismay

For Jesus Christ our Saviour (or Remember Christ our Saviour)

Was born upon this day (or 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, (or "in Jewry")

This bless'd Babe was born

And laid within a manger

Upon this bless'd 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

This blessed Babe to find. (or The Son of God to find)

O tidings of comfort and joy,

Comfort and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy

 

But when to Bethlehem they came (or And when they came to Bethlehem)

Whereat this Infant lay, (or Where our dear Saviour lay)

They found Him in a manger,

Where oxen feed on hay;

His Mother Mary kneeling, (or 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
