God Rest You, Merry

This morning, on the way to join hundreds of thousands of like-minded last minute grocery shoppers,
The Prude heard a version of one of her favorite songs sung by a band whose name she blushes to repeat.
But she highly recommends this rendition,  by the 'Haven't Yet Decided on their Apparel for the Day Ladies'.


"God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman / We Three Kings"
author unknown
(feat. Sarah McLachlan)

God rest ye merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay,
Remember Christ our Saviour
Was born upon this day;
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray.

[Chorus]
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy!

From God our heavenly Father
This blessed angel came;
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same;
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by name.

[Chorus]
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy!

O, star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Born a king on Bethlehem's plain;
Gold I bring to crown Him again;
King forever, ceasing never,
Over us all to reign.

[Chorus]
O, star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Glorious now behold Him arise,
King and God and sacrifice,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Worshipping God most high.

O, star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

God rest ye merry, gentlemen, let nothing you dismay
God rest ye merry, gentlemen, let nothing you dismay
God rest ye merry, gentlemen, let nothing you dismay

God bless you all, dear friends!
Merry Christmas with love from
Your Prude

Hey Anita, the album from which the aforementioned version of the song comes is really very fun. I bet they're chilly this time of year.

:)

Merry Christmas!!

AhHA Steph!!!!! I bet they are too!
I have to check out their album but I am not sure when I will ever be able to say their name. At least without blushing.
