Silent Night

Silent night, sacred night,
Bethlehem sleeps, yet what light
Floats around the holy Pair,
Songs of angels fill the air;
Strains of heavenly peace,
Strains of heavenly peace.

Silent night, sacred night,
Shepherds first see the light,
Hear the Alleluias ring,
Which the angel chorus sing:
Christ the Saviour has come,
Christ the Saviour has come.

Silent night, sacred night,
Son of God! Oh, what light
Issues from Thy manger bed
Over realms with darkness spread;
Thou in Bethlehem born,
Thou in Bethlehem born.

Brothers of the Christian Schools, The De La Salle Hymnal (New York: La Salle Bureau, 1913).
