God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Bing Crosby Lyrics


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

(Oh tidings of comfort and joy)
(Comfort and joy, o tidings of comfort and joy)
In Bethlehem in Jewry
This blessed Babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn

The which His Mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn

(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 that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by name

(O tidings of comfort and joy)
(Comfort and joy, o tidings of comfort and joy)

To save us all from Satan's pow'r
When we were gone astray
Oh tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
Oh tidings of comfort and joy

My wife and I just listened to the one and only Bing Crosby. We miss very much a time in our country when Christmas was celebrated without complaints about Christmas music and trees and nativity scenes. Today we're amazed at how offended people are at some of the most beautiful traditions of the greatest country on earth. If my grandparents could some how come back, they'd be horrified at how people are continuously trying to get rid of the traditions that made our country so wonderful. Nowadays we walk on eggshells not knowing who's gonna be offended at things that are good and wholesome. Thank you for putting one of the greatest entertainers of all time on YouTube!!

Anyone who takes offence should shut themselves away for the holiday season. I love Christmas. It's a beautiful tradition and should be celebrated openly and proudly. I mean I can understand somewhat when people mention the consumerism aspect but saying Merry Christmas and playing wonderful songs are wonderful elements we should practice yearly.

You and your family keep celebrating these wonderful traditions of our Christ! Christmas is a beautiful time in him and for those who are offended, oh well! We keep wholesome traditions alive in our house! Merry Christmas to you and yours and may God pour out salvation and celebration in your house from this year on! Amen!
