God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen Lyrics ID: 3714

(First verse as published in 1760:)
God rest you merry, Gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
For Jesus Christ our Saviour
Was born upon this Day
To save poor souls from Satan's power
Which long time had gone astray
Which brings tidings of comfort and joy

(Carol as published in 1775:)
God rest you, merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Saviour
Was born on Christmas-day
To save poor souls from Satan's power
Which long time had gone astray
And it is tidings of comfort and joy

From God that is our Father
The blessed angels came
Unto some certain shepherds
With tidings of the same
That he was born in Bethlehem
The Son of God by name
And it is tidings of comfort and joy

Now when they came to Bethlehem
Where our sweet Saviour lay
They found him in a manger
Where oxen feed on hay
The blessed Virgin kneeling down
Unto the Lord did pray
And it is tidings of comfort and joy

With sudden joy and gladness
The shepherds were beguil'd
To see the Babe of Israel
Before his mother mild
O then with joy and cheerfulness
Rejoice each mother's child
And it is tidings of comfort and joy

Now to the Lord sing praises
All you within this place
Like we true loving brethren
Each other to embrace
For the merry time of Christmas
Is coming on a-pace
And it is tidings of comfort and joy

Lyrics by traditional English carol.
