                Tuning: Standard Key of Am
Note:  Not happy with the tabs out there for this tune, I decided to do my own
arrangement. Here is a simple beginner's version.  The lyrics were obtained from
chords are 2 beats long except for the E7 in the intro which is a 4 count.  Thus, the
stumming would be as follows:

E7     |Am   Em |C   Am |
/      |/    /  |/   /  | etc. so here's the arrangement with lyrics:


E7     Am      Em     C     Am      Am      C      E7  E7
   God rest ye merry, gentlemen Let nothing you dismay
  Am      Em          C     Am      Am      C         E7  E7
Remember, Christ, our Saviour   Was born on Christmas day
   F       Em       G       Em    Am           Em    Dm   
To save us all from Satan's power When we were gone astray
Am C   Dm      Em      C   Am   C           Dm             
O  ti dings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy  
Am C  G        Em      C   Am
O  ti dings of comfort and joy

 
In Bethlehem, in Israel, 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

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

"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 power and might."
O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy

The shepherds at those tidings Rejoiced much in mind,
And left their flocks a-feeding In tempest, storm and wind:
And went to Bethlehem straightway The Son of God to find.
O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy

And when they came to Bethlehem Where our dear Saviour lay,
They found Him in a manger, Where oxen feed on hay;
His Mother Mary kneeling down, Unto the Lord did pray.
O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy

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 other doth deface.
O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy
