McKennitt, Loreena - God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen Lyrics




God rest ye 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!

From God our Heavenly Father
A blessed angel came
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same
How in that Bethlehem was born
The son of God by name

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

The shepherds at those tidings
Rejoiced much in mind,
And left their flocks a-feeding
In tempest, storm and wind
And went to Bethlehem straightaway
This blessed babe to find

But when to Bethlehem they came
Whereat this infant lay
They found him in a manger
Where oxen feed on hay
His mother Mary kneeling
Unto the Lord did pray

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 others doth deface

    Çok ğüzel bir yorum teşekkürler loreanna duyduğum ilk günden beri hayranlıkla dinliyorum

  15. Serai3

    What I love about this version is how it brings into sharp relief the fact that Christianity is a Middle Eastern religion. Too many Christians prefer to forget that crucial fact.

    Maria Perez

    Forget our roots is a mis take.

    Marie Tg

    Medieval music/instruments arrived straight from the crusades and yes, therefore its roots are in the middle east on a base of norse and celtic melodies, horns and drums.

  16. Catherine Leary

    Some songs have the power to take us to a different time and place.
    This is such a song.

  17. Willcelso Shemhamforash samael hamsiel

    belíssima canção, inspirada pelos Deuses, sem dúvida!

    Lyrics:

    God rest ye 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!

    From God our Heavenly Father
    A blessed angel came
    And unto certain shepherds
    Brought tidings of the same
    How in that Bethlehem was born
    The son of God by name

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

    The shepherds at those tidings
    Rejoiced much in mind,
    And left their flocks a-feeding
    In tempest, storm and wind
    And went to Bethlehem straightaway

    But when to Bethlehem they came
    Whereat this infant lay
    They found him in a manger
    Where oxen feed on hay

  31. Pantita Trisakul

    I loved this song since I sang it in my primary school when I was about 6-7 years old. It's my favourite. I'm 16 now and still LOVE this song. Remind me of the past, like medieval age. This version reminds me of Israel in Jesus' time and it's so nice.

  32. kadir mehmetoglu

    everytime is i listen her voice, it makes me feel to be the places I have never been ,just on my imagination

    noreavad

    That is the power of music. It has a special place in our human brain so we can travel far away in space and time when we listen to it. Just imagine a celtic tribe dancing around Stonehenge with the drums banging on the rhythm !

    Orlando Oracle

    Yes, the same thing happens to me when I listen to her music! It invokes memories of a time and place that I’m not even sure ever existed!

  33. Loony Lyra

    The song that stole my little childhood heart
