Verse 1
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 pow'r
When we were gone astray


O tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy


Verse 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


Verse 3
Fear not then said the angel
Let nothing you affright
This day is born a Saviour
Of a pure virgin bright
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan's pow'r and might


Verse 4
The shepherds at those tidings
Rejoiced much in mind
And left their flocks afeeding
In tempest storm and wind
And went to Bethlehem straightway
The blessed Babe to find
