God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

This traditional carol probably originated in 16th-century London. The version we know today arose during the Victorian era, when caroling in groups became popular in England and America.

God rest ye merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ our Savior
was born upon this day,
To save us all from Satan's power
when we were gone stray.

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

In Bethlehem, in Jewry
This blessed Babe was born,
And laid within a manger,
Upon this blessed morn;
To which His mother Mary did
nothing take in scorn.

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