167R Still the Night, Holy the Night

STILLE NACHT (Irregular)

1. Still the night, Ho-ly the night,
all is calm, all is bright;
Round yon faith-ful ten-der pair,
ho-ly in-fant with cur-ly hair;
Sleep in hea-ven-ly peace;
Sleep in hea-ven-ly peace.

2. Still the night, Ho-ly the night,
shep-herds first saw the sight,
heard re-sound-ing, clear and strong,
far and near, the an-gels' song,
Christ, Re-deem-er is here,
Christ, Re-deem-er is here.

3. Still the night, Ho-ly the night,
won-drous star, lend your light;
O an-gels, who God's bles-sings bring;
'Al-le-lu-ia' ever we sing!
Je-sus, Sav-ior is born;
Je-sus, Sav-ior is born.


4. Still the night, Ho-ly the night,
by God's love, by God's might,
the Cre-a-tor sent down grace,
through the Christ child in gentle em-brace
to all child-ren on earth,
to all child-ren on earth.

5. Still the night, Ho-ly the night,
sent down from hea-ven's height;
Love is smi-ling from thy face;
Strikes for us now the hour of grace;
Sav-ior since thou art born;
Sav-ior since thou art born.


6. Still the night, Ho-ly the night,
all shines dim save thy light,
shin-ing where the par-ents mild
keep watch ov-er the ho-ly child;
Sleep in heav-en-ly peace;
Sleep in heav-en-ly peace.
