1. God rest ye, merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Savior
Was born upon this day
To save us all from Satan’s power
When we were gone astray

(Chorus)
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy

2. 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

Repeat Chorus

3. In Bethlehem in Jewry
This blessed Babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn
The which his mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn

Repeat Chorus
