SILENT NIGHT

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 Saviour is born!

Christ the Saviour is born!

The carol was first performed on Christmas Eve 1818

at St. Nicholas church, Oberndorf, Austria.

Melody: Franz Xaver Gruber, words: Father Joseph Mohr.

1. Little Jesus, sweetly sleep, do not stir;

We will lend a coat of fur,

We will rock you, rock you, rock you,

We will rock you, rock you, rock you:

See the fur to keep you warm,

Snugly round your tiny form.


2. Mary's little baby, sleep, sweetly sleep,

Sleep in comfort, slumber deep;

We will rock you, rock you, rock you,

We will rock you, rock you, rock you:

We will serve you all we can,

Darling, darling little man.
