1. Silent night! hallowed night!
Silent sleep, calm and deep;
Softly glitters bright Bethlehem’s star,
Beckoning Israel’s eye from afar,
Where the Savior is born,
Where the Savior is born.

2. Silent night! hallowed night!
On the plain wake the strain
Sung by heavenly harbingers bright,
Fraught with tidings of heavenly light,
Christ, the Savior, has come,
Christ, the Savior, has come.

3. Silent night! hallowed night!
Earth awake, silence break!
High your anthems of melody raise;
Sing, ye mortals, your liveliest praise,
Peace forever shall reign,
Peace forever shall reign.
