Christmas Carols – God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen lyrics

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 tiding of the same;
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by name.

"Fear not, then," said the angel,
"Let nothing you affright;
This day is born a Savior
Of a pure virgin bright,
To free all those who trust in him
From Satan's power and might. "

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
Doth bring redeeming grace

    The bible tells it this way:
    some shepherds staying out in a field, and keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. (who wouldn't be?) and the angel said to them, "do not be afraid; for behold, i bring you good news of great joy which shall be for all the people; for today in the city of david, there has been born for you a savior who is christ the lord. "
    Luke 2: 8-11
    it means we should not be afraid. Jesus came to save us, not condemn us. And he came to free us from the power of satan; and our sin. Forever to those who believe in jesus.
