Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht

Gesangbuch (1996), no. 134

1. 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.

2. 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!

3. 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.


Silent Night

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 204

Translator: John F. Young

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.

2. Silent night! Holy night! Shepherds quake at the sight! Glories stream from heaven afar; Heav’nly hosts sing Alleluia! Christ, the Savior, is born! Christ, the Savior, is born!

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.
