9. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (4:13)
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 when we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

In Bethlehem, in Israel this blessed baby was born
And laid within a manger upon this blessed morn
The which his mother Mary did nothing take in scorn
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

Fear not, then said the angel, let nothing you affright
This day is born a savior of the pure virgin bright
To free all those who trust in Him from Satan’s power and might
O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
O 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
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
