Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

739. Silent night! Holy night!

1 Silent night! holy night!
All is calm, all is bright
Yonder the Virgin-Mother and Child,
Holy Infant so tender and ild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

2 Silent night! holy night!
Only for shepherd's sight
Came blest visions of angel throngs,
With their loud alleluia songs,
Saying CHRIST is come,
Saying CHRIST is come.

3 Silent night! holy night!
Child of heaven, O how bright
Thou didst smile on us when thou wast born,
Blest indeed was that happy morn,
Full of heavenly joy,
Full of heavenly joy.
