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

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

3. Silent night, holiest night,
Child is heaven, O how bright
Thou didst smile on us when Thou wast born!
Blest indeed that happy morn,
Full of heavenly joy!
Full of heavenly joy!
