1. 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.

2. Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds first saw the light,
Heard resounding clear and long,
Far and near, the angel song:
Christ the Savior is here,
Christ the Savior is here.

3. Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, oh, how bright
Love is smiling from thy face,
Peals for us the hour of grace.
Christ our Savior is born,
Christ our Savior is born.
