A Carol a Day

By Father Johann Roten, S.M.

God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen

16th century (or earlier), anonymous

God rest you merry, gentlemen;
Let nothing you dismay.
Remember, Christ, our Saviour
Was born on Christmas day,
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy!
O tidings of comfort and joy!
