One of my favorite Christmas carols:
God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen
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.
"God rest ye merry, gentlemen" was an old English expression
which petitioned God to keep one merry or joyful.
May your heart be full of joy this Christmas season.
