God rest ye merry, gentlemen; [Em] [B7] [Em]
Let nothing you dismay [Em] [C] [B7]
Remember Christ our Savior [Em] [B7] [Em]
Was born on Christmas Day [Em] [C] [B7]
To save us all from Satan's pow'r [Am] [B7]
When we were gone a-stray [Em] [D/F#]
O tidings of comfort and joy, [G] [CG] [B7] [Em]
Comfort and joy! [D]
O tidings of comfort and joy [G] [(/a] [/b] [C)] [B7] [Em]
In Bethlehem, in Israel, this blessed Babe was born,
And laid within a manger upon this blessed morn;
The which His Mother Mar-y did nothing take in scorn.
From God our heav'nly 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.
