"God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" as written by Bruce Cockburn and Pd Traditional....
God rest ye merry, gentlemen let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Savior 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

From God our Heavenly 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
O tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

"Fear not," said the angel
"Let nothing you affright
This day is born a Savior of pure or Virgin bright
To free all those who trust in Him from Satan's power and might"
O tidings of comfort and joy (comfort and joy)
O tidings of comfort and joy

Oh, joy (tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy)
Oh, joy (tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy, comfort and joy)

Now to the Lord sing praises
All you within this place
And with true love and brotherhood each other now embrace
This holy tide of Christmas all other doth deface
O tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy
Oh, joy (tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy)
Oh, joy (tidings of comfort and joy)
We have gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy
