Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, you see, all is bright.
Round yon virgin mother and child,
Holy infant, so tender and mild, you say,
"Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace."
Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds last saw the sight.
Glorious streaming from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts singing, "Alleluia!
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born."
Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, heaven, love's pure light.
Radiance beaming from Thy holy face,
With the dawning of redeeming grace.
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, you say, all is bright.
Round yon virgin mother and child,
Holy infant, so tender and mild, you say,
"Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace."
