Our Favourite Christmas Carols & Songs – Silent Night

carollers2Written in 1816 by Austrian priest Joseph Mohr, Silent Night was originally a poem. The story goes that on Christmas Eve in 1818 in a small alpine village called Oberndorf, the organ at St. Nicholas Church had broken down. Joseph Mohr gave the poem of Silent Night (Stille Nacht) to his friend Franz Xavier Gruber and the melody for Silent Night was composed in time for Midnight Mass. From its humble beginnings, Silent Night has become the most famous Christmas carol of all time!

Silent Night : Lyrics

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

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born

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
