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 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!

Joy to the world
For Christ the Lord has finally come
Let every heart receive the newborn King
O come all of heaven and nature sing

Hark! how the bells
Sweet silver bells
All seem to say,
"throw cares away."
Christmas is here
Bringing good cheer
To young and old
Meek and the bold

Tidings of comfort and joy

Hark! how the bells
Sweet silver bells
All seem to say,
"throw cares away."
Christmas is here
Bringing good cheer
To young and old
Meek and the bold

Tidings of comfort and joy

Hark! how the bells
Sweet silver bells
All seem to say,
"throw cares away."
Christmas is here
Bringing good cheer
To young and old
Meek and the bold

O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy;
O tidings of comfort and joy!

O how happy are their tones
Gaily they ring
Telling a tale
While people sing
Songs of good cheer
Christmas is here
