GOD REST YE MERRY, GENTLEMEN
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.
