(Joseph Mohr, 1818-- translation anon.)
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, shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar, Heav'nly hosts sing Allelluia
Christ the savior is born, Christ the savior is born.
Silent night, holy night, wondrous star, lend thy light
With the angels let us sing Alleluia to our King
Christ the Saviour is here, Jesus the Saviour is here!
Silent night, holy night. Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face, with the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth, Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.
note: music, Franz Xavier Gruber, 1818
