1. Holy Night! Silent Night,
All is calm, all is bright
Round the gentle mother and child,
Holy Infant tender and mild
Rests in heav'nly peace,
Rests in heav'nly peace.

2. Holy night! silent night!
Guiding Star, lend thy light!
See the eastern wise men bring
Gifts and homage to our King!
Jesus Christ is here,
Jesus Christ is here.

3. Holy night! silent night!
Wondrous Star, lend thy light!
With the angels let us sing
Hallelujah to our King!
Jesus Christ is here,
Jesus Christ is here.
