God Rest You Merry Gentlemen Chords

from "The Soul Felt Its Worth"

         Em            
God rest you 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.

 


     Refrain  (1st refrain hold on Em)
          G                                    Em        
    O tidings of comfort and joy,  
                          D/F#
    Comfort and joy,
          G               D/F#            Em
    O tidings of comfort and joy.

 


          Em            
From God our heavenly Father, 
      C                     B 
A blessed angel came;
         Em                 
And unto certain shepherds 
               C                      B 
Brought tidings of the same;
         Am                  G 
How that in Bethlehem was born 
       Em                      D/F#
The Son of God by name.

 


     Refrain
 

        Em             

Fear not, then, said the angel, 

       C                    B

Let nothing you affright;

        Em               

This day is born a Savior 

         C                 B  

Of a pure virgin bright;

     Am                           G 

To free all those who trust in him

          Em                            D/F#

From Satan’s power and might.

 

 

     Refrain

 

 

         Em              

The shepherds at those tidings 

     C                        B 

Rejoiced much in mind,

        Em                

And left their flocks a-feeding,

     C                                  B 

In tempest, storm, and wind,

        Am                      G 

And went to Bethlehem straightway, 

      Em                       D/F#

The Son of God to find.
