MIDI / Noteworthy Composer

1. Silens nox, sancta nox,
Placida, lucida,
Virginem et puerum
Dulcem atque tenerum,
Somno opprime,
Somno opprime.

2. Silens nox, sancta nox,
Angeli nitidi
"Alleluia" concinunt;
Nunc pastores metuunt;
Christus natus est,
Christus natus est.

3. Silens nox, sancta nox,
Candida, splendida
Fili Dei facies
Nobis praebet novas spes;
Christus natus est,
Christus natus est.
