1. Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, all is bright,
Round Thy children, Father on high,
Beams the light of Thy Starry sky,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
2. Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds pray at the sight,
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Golden beams from the eastern star;
Comes the glorious morn,
Comes the glorious morn.
3. Silent night, holy night,
God on high, love's pure light,
Radiant beams from Thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Peace and heavenly love,
Peace and heavenly love.
