Favourite Christmas songs, part 2

I was pleasantly surprised when David Bazan releases a Christmas album last year. He brings a unique twist to the genre like only he can, and this version of God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen gets me every damn time.

 

Lyrics

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

Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy

After Thanksgiving our folks
Unpacked the manger scene
With Joseph, Mary, shepherds
And three kings on bended knee
But left the manger empty
Till we slept on Christmas Eve

Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy

And now my wife and children dream
Of gifts beneath the tree
While I place in the manger
Baby Jesus figurine
Sipping Christmas whiskey
Wondering if I still believe

Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy
