Tidings (God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen)
Israel Houghton

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
Tidings
Of comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

In Bethlehem in Israel
This blessed Babe was born
And laid in a manger
Upon this blessed morn
To which His Mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn
O tidings
Tidings
Of Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

Joy to the world the Lord
The Lord has come to earth with comfort and joy
To all who receive His love

Tidings tidings
Tidings tidings
Of comfort and joy
Tidings tidings
Tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy to the world

Comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
