about

This song was written by a young priest, Father Joseph Mohr, who wrote the lyrics 1816, and by Franz Xaver Gruber, schoolmaster and organist, who composed the melody. They performed the carol during the mass on the night of December 24, 1818 at St Nicholas parish church in Oberndorf,
During the Christmas truce of 1914 during World War I, the song was sung in French, English and German by troops. Today, it is our reminder in a world plagued by war and discord that peace begins at Christmas.

lyrics

Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

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.

Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake, at the sight
Glories stream from heaven above
Heavenly, hosts sing Hallelujah.
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.
