Representative Text

1. Тихая ночь, дивная ночь!
Дремлет все, лишь не спит
В благоговенье святая Чета;
Чудным Младенцем полны их сердца,
Радость в душе их горит,

2. Радость в душе их горит.
Тихая ночь, дивная ночь!
Глас с небес возвестил:
Радуйтесь, ныне родился Христос,
Мир и спасение всем Он принёс,
Свыше нас Свет посетил,

3. Свыше нас Свет посетил!
Тихая ночь, дивная ночь!
К небу нас Бог призвал,
О, да откроются наши сердца
И да прославят Его все уста,
Он нам Спаситель дал,

4. Он нам Спаситель дал.
