Silent Night
Words by Joseph Mohr
Music by Franz Gruber

Luke 2:8-9

        1. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
        2. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and
          they were sore afraid.

          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,
          Heav'nly 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!
