Silent Night

Christmas Carol - Silent Night

This carol was written in 1818, in the Tyrolean village of Hallein, by the local church organist Franz Gruber and a schoolmaster called Joseph Mohr. This resulted in one of the most popular of all carols.

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!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from Heaven afar
Heav'nly host sing Alleluia
Christ the Saviour, is born
Christ the Saviour, is born

3. 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
