Silent Night

One of the most popular Christmas carols everywhere Silent Night was originally written in German in 1818 by Austrian composer Franz Xaver Gruber with lyrics by Austrian priest Joseph Mohr. Since 2011 the song is part of UNESCO cultural heritage. Silent Night was translated in English by the author himself and was then taken over and adapted in different languages all over the world.

“Silent Night” Lyrics

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 Savior, is born,
Christ, the Savior, 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.

Silent night, holy night
Wondrous star, lend thy light;
With the angels let us sing,
Alleluia to our King;
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born!*
