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.
