Silent Night Lyrics – This is a popular Christmas song composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber. Silent Night Lyrics has written by Franz Xaver Gruber & Joseph Mohr. It was declared an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2011. The song has been recorded by many singers across many music genres. One of The version sung by Bing Crosby in 1935 has sold 10 million copies as a single. The song was first performed on Christmas Eve 1818 at St Nicholas parish church in Oberndorf, a village in the Austrian Empire on the Salzach river in present-day Austria. Silent Night is one of the most well-known traditional Christmas carols sung around the world. The English translation we most frequently sing today was written and published by Episcopal priest John Freeman Young in 1859, who translated three verses of Mohr’s original six verses. The melody used today (a slow, meditative lullaby or pastorale) is slightly different from Gruber’s original (a moderato tune in 6/8 time and siciliana rhythm), particularly in the final strain.


Silent Night Lyrics | Christmas Songs | Canterbury Organ and Chimes of Christmas: Classic Christmas Favorites (1992)

[Verse 1]
Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

[Verse 2]
Silent night, holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia
Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born

[Verse 3]
Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
