God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Traditional lyrics

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
God rest ye, merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay,
Remember christ our savior 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

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 afright
This day is born a savior of a pure virgin bright,
To free all those who trust in him from satan's power and might."

The shepherds at those tidings rejoiced much in mind,
And left their flocks a-feeding in tempest, storm and wind,
And went to bethl'em straightaway this blessed babe to find.

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.

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.

God bless the ruler of this house, and send him long to reign,
And many a merry christmas may live to see again;
Among your friends and kindred that live both far and near--
That god send you a happy new year, happy new year,
And god send you a happy new year.
