God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman

Why do some songs become our favorites?

I love Christmas carols in general and have some favorites among them. "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" is my number one pick. Why? Somehow it struck a chord in me growing up - both the lyrics and the stately tune.

I think my spirit is not as often at rest as it needs to be. I am often restless. So I need the message of letting my spirit be at rest that this song encourages.

Do you have a favorite? I would be interested in hearing what it is and why you prefer it over others.
