God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen Lyrics

God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen - The Choir of King's College, Cambridge/Simon Preston

God rest you merry gentlemen

Let nothing you dismay

For Jesus Christ our Savior

Was born upon this Day.

To save poor souls from Satan's power,

We were gone astray

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Comfort and joy

Oh 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

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Comfort and joy

Oh 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

The son of god to find

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Comfort and joy

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

 

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 down

Unto the lord did pray

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Comfort and joy

Oh 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

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Comfort and joy

Oh tidings of comfort and joy
