Silent Night

Franz Xaver Gruber and Joseph Mohr, 1818
[Key: G]

Verse 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!

Verse 2
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!

Verse 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!
