On Christmas Eve in 1818, a blizzard stranded the tiny
Village of Obendorf nestled in the Austrian
Mountains. That same day, the people of St. Nicholas's
Church found their organ broken. So the priest and
Organist began composing a song that could be sung
Without an organ, yet beautiful enough to express
Their Christmas joy. All day and all night long they
Worked. And at midnight, the gentle carol "Silent
Night" was born. The pure clear tones echoed through
The hills. And the world has been captured by the
Beauty of that simple song ever since.

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
Glory streams from Heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Hallelujah
Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, and 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
Sleep in heavenly peace
