(Sung to the tune of God Rest Ye
Come in, dear friends, and warm
yourselves beside our blazing fire.
The wind outside is icy cold, and snow is piling higher.
The Autumn leaves are buried now, beneath the fallen snow.
So come in friends, and welcome to our home. To-oo our
So be quick, come in, and do please close the door.
Our table's set with food and wine; beneath it children play.
We labored not in vain this year; our bounty's on display.
Come, please yourselves with food and wine, and conversation
It's a joy to have friends so good and true. Goo-ood and
It's a joy to have some friends as good as you.
In time the players will arrive, and music will abound.
Their instruments will fill the air with much delightful
The children too will laugh and sing, and whirl and twirl
Every one is a comfort and a joy. Comfort and jo-o-oy.
Every one of them's a comfort and a joy.
And after all the dancing's done, we'll settle by the fire.
And hear a storyteller tell of heroes who aspire
To save the world from reckless greed, and leaders gone
May the baaad guys be caught and made to pay. O-ne fine
May their villainy be ended one fine day.
Come sing with us, we'll cast a
upon the dancing flame.
And conjure up a vision there enticing all to dream.
The little ones may fall asleep, but others tend the fire.
May their dreams be the kind that take us higher. Let us
To a better world, both prosperous and free.
Come rest ye merry gentlefolk. Let
nothing you dismay.
The battle will be won by love, and truth will light our way.
But rest a while beside the fire, and let your thoughts be
O-oh! tidings of co-omfort and joy. Comfort and jo-o-oy.
O-oh! ti-idings of co-omfort and joy.
Come Rest Ye Merry Gentlefolk
