Silent Night / Stille Nacht

Year: 1818 -

(M: Franz Gruber, G. Lyrics: Joseph Mohr, E. Lyrics: John Freeman Young)

	  		D      
Silent night, holy night!   
A7           D   
All is calm, all is bright   
G                D   
Round yon virgin mother and child.   
G               D   
Holy infant so tender and mild,   
A7                D   
Sleep in heavenly peace,   
D         A7       D   
Sleep in heavenly peace.   
   
   
Verse 2:   
Silent night, holy night!   
Shepherds quake at the sight.   
Glories steam 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,   
   
   

Music: Franz Gruber 1818 (composed for guitar, Key: D) 
German lyrics:  Poem by Joseph Mohr, 1816, 1818 


Music: Franz Xaver Gruber, 1818 
Words: Joseph Mohr, 1816/1818 

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht, 
Alles schläft; einsam wacht 
Nur das traute hochheilige Paar. 
Holder Knabe im lockigen Haar, 
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh! 
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh! 

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht, 
Hirten erst kundgemacht 
Durch der Engel Halleluja, 
Tönt es laut von fern und nah: 
Christ, der Retter ist da! 
Christ, der Retter ist da! 

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht, 
Gottes Sohn, o wie lacht 
Lieb' aus deinem göttlichen Mund, 
Da uns schlägt die rettende Stund'. 

Christ, in deiner Geburt! 
Christ, in deiner Geburt!
