God rest ye merry gentlemen, tonight is born a son
To heaven and to earth to bring new life to everyone
And though it may be hard to see, tonight it’s just begun
These are tidings of comfort and joy
The angels sang “fear not, then and let nothing you afright.
He’ll free all those who trust in him from Satan’s power and might.”
We’ve been so lost we’ve been so broke we’ve suffered endless night
But here come tidings of comfort and joy
A picture painting hope and peace for ages yet to come
The echo of the sovereign angel’s song compares to none
For all the times I’ve fought and lost I’m still ‘beloved one’.
This is tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy.
(Comfort and joy)
