1 God rest you merry, gentlemen,
let nothing you dismay!
for Jesus Christ our Saviour
was born on Christmas Day,
to save us all from Satan’s power
when we had gone astray:

O tidings of comfort and joy,
comfort and joy;
O tidings of comfort and joy!

2 From God our heavenly Father
a holy angel came;
the shepherds saw the glory
and heard the voice proclaim
that Christ was born in Bethlehem —
and Jesus is his name: [Refrain]

3 ‘Fear not,’ then said the angel,
‘let nothing cause you fright;
to you is born a Saviour
in David’s town tonight,
to free all those who trust in him
from Satan’s power and might:’ [Refrain]

4 Now to the Lord sing praises,
all people in this place;
with Christian love and fellowship
each other now embrace,
and let this Christmas festival
all bitterness displace: [Refrain]
