Dio – God Rest You Merry Gentlemen

God rest ye merry gentlemen, Let nothing you dismay, Remember Christ, our saviour, Was born on Christmas day, To save us all from Satan’s power, When we were gone astray

Dio was an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 and led by vocalist Ronnie James Dio. Dio left Black Sabbath with intentions to form a new band with fellow former Black Sabbath member Vinny Appice, the band’s drummer. The band released ten studio albums and had numerous line-up changes over the years with Dio himself being the only constant member. The band dissolved in 2010 when Ronnie James Dio died of stomach cancer at the age of 67. Dio has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide.

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ, our saviour
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

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

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

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ, our saviour
He 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

God rest you
God take you
God make you merry, gentlemen
