026. God rest you merry gentlemen

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;
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:
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy

“Fear not, then” said the angel
“Let nothing you afright
This day is born a Savior,
a blessed holy sight.
To free all those who trust in Him
from Satan’s pow’r and might.”
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 Child of Christmas
shall fill our hearts with grace
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of
comfort
and joy
Comfort and joy!
Comfort and joy!
Comfort and joy!
