1. Holy night, Silent night;
All things sleep, Angels bright
Rev'rent watch with Mary mild
O'er the cradle of her child.
Sleep in heav'nly rest.
Sleep in heav'nly rest.

2. Holy night, Silent night;
Shepherds saw Wondrous light,
Waked by angels' glorious strain:
"Peace on earth, Good-will to men;
Christ is born indeed,
Christ is born indeed."

Sheet Music from Eleanor Smith, et al., eds., The Children's Hymnal (New York: American Book Company, 1918), #85, p. 99.
