1 Hush, hush, hush!
Behold the wondrous light!
Who will appear? The Christ-child dear,
For this, you know, is Holy night,
For this, you know, is Holy night.

2 Hark, hark, hark!
He's knocking at the door:
Hear His bell ring; for joy we wing:
Come quick, for we can wait no more,
Come quick, for we can wait no more.

3 Yes, yes, yes,
We love Thee one and all;
With gift so bright this Christmas night,
Dear Jesus, bless us great and small,
Dear Jesus, bless us great and small.

4 Thanks, thanks, thanks,
O Child, we love so well!
We children here pray, Savior dear,
Thou in our heart alone wilt dwell,
Thou in our heart alone wilt dwell.
