Christmas Songs – 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 (2x)

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

    The author has a deep delight in the birth of Christ and brings it as a poem or a song. He mentions night, usually night would be dark but here it says "all is bright". Not the son which makes bright but the birth of Christ which brightened every heart. The angelic host sings Alleluia and proclaims the birth to shepherds. The shepherds went to see the Christ, the son of God whose face shine with radiant beams of heaven.
