1.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,
2.Silent night, holy night,
Darkness, flies and all is light;
Shepherds hear the angels sing:
'Alleluia! hail the King!
Jesus the Saviour is here,
Jesus the Saviour is here.'
3.Holy night, peaceful night,
Child of heaven, O how bright
Thou didst smile when thou wast born;
Blessed was that happy morn,
Full of heavenly joy,
Full of heavenly joy.
4.Silent night, holy night,
Guiding Star, O lend thy light;
See the eastern wise men bring
Gifts and homage to our King!
Jesus the Saviour is here,
Jesus the Saviour is here.
5.Silent night, holy night,
Wondrous Star, O lend thy light!
With the angels let us sing
Alleluia to our King!
Jesus our Saviour is here,
Jesus our Saviour is here.
Amen.
