Notes

1. Silent night! Holy Night,
All is dark, save the light,
Yonder, where they sweet vigils keep,
Oer the Babe who in silent sleep
Rests in heavenly peace,
Rests in heavenly peace.

2. Silent night, Peaceful night!
Darkness flies, all is light;
Shepherds hear the angels sing,
"Alleluia! Hail the King!
Christ the Savior is born,
Jesus the Saviour is born.

3. Silent night! Holy night!
Guiding Star, lend thy light;
See the Eastern wise men bring
Gifts and homage to our King!
Christ the Savior is born,
Jesus the Saviour is born.

4. Silent night! Holiest night!
Wondrous Star, lend thy light;
With the angels let us sing
Alleluia to our King!
Christ the Savior is born,
Jesus the Saviour is born.
