God Rest You Merry Gentlemen Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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.
Verse 2
O' tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy;
O' tidings of comfort and joy!
From God our Heavenly Father
A blessed angel came
Verse 3
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same
How in that Bethlehem was born
The son of God by name
Verse 4
Fear not, then said the angel
Let nothing you affright
This day is born a savior
Of a pure virgin bright
Verse 5
To free all those who trust in him
From Satan's pow'r and might
The shepherds at those tidings
Rejoiced much in mind,
And left their flocks a-feeding
In tempest, storm and wind
Verse 6
And went to Bethlehem 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
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
Each other now embrace
This holy tide of Christmas
All others doth deface
