On Christmas Eve in 1818 A blizzard stranded the tiny village of Ogledorf Nestled in the Austrian mountains That same day the people of St. Nicholas' church found their organ broken So the priest and organist began composing a song that could be sung without An organ yet beautiful enough to express their Christmas joy All day and all night long they worked And at midnight the gentle carol Silent Night was born The pure clear tones echoed through the hills And the world has been captured by the beauty of that simple song ever since.
Silent Night Holy Night All is calm All is bright Round yon virgin Mother and child Holy infant so tender and mild Sleep in heavenly peace Sleep in heavenly peace
Silent Night Holy Night Shepeards pray at the sight Glory streams from heaven afar Heavenly ? sing hallelujah Christ the Savior is born Christ the Savior is born
Silent Night Holy Night All is calm And all is bright Round yon virgin Mother and child Holy infant so tender and mild Sleep in heavenly peace Sleep in heavenly peace
