Silent Night

                                              Franz Gruber

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.

Silent night! Holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight!
Glories stream from Heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing "Alleluia,
Christ, the Saviour, is born!"

Silent night! Holy night,
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
