"SILENT NIGHT"

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.
Glory streams from Heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing, “Alleluya,
Christ, the Savior, is born,
Christ, the Savior, is born!”

Verse 3
Silent night, holy night,
Wond’rous star, lend Thy light.
With the angels let us sing,
“Alleluya” to our King.
Christ, the Savior, is born,
Silent night, holy night,
Christ, the Savior, is born.
