John Berry — God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman lyrics

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
For Jesus Christ our Saviour
Was born upon this day

To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/john-berry-god-rest-ye-merry-gentleman-lyrics.html ]
From God our Heavenly Father
A blessed Angel came
And unto certain Shepherds
Brought tidings of the same

Now that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by name
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy

Jesus Christ our Saviour
Was born upon this day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy
