Comfort and Joy, Part 2

“God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, let nothing you dismay…”. It’s a wonderful song we often sing on Christmas Eve and is actually one of the very oldest of all carols sung in English. There’s one problem with old songs, though – words sometimes change in meaning over time, and understanding changes. When we closely examine the song’s original meaning, it is actually a prayer – for all Christians to be strengthened for the service of God. How does that differ from our interpretation today?
