god rest ye merry gentlemen lyrics – aly & aj

god rest ye merry, gentlemen
let nothing you dismay
remember, christ, our saviour
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

and when they came to bethlehem
where our dear saviour lay,
they found him in a manger,
where oxen feed on hay;
his mother mary kneeling down,
unto the lord did pray.
o tidings of comfort and joy,
comfort and joy
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 tide of christmas
all other doth deface.
o tidings of comfort and joy,
comfort and joy
o tidings of comfort and joy
