Silent Night

Silent Night

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;
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing, Alleluia!
Christ, the Savior, is born!
Christ, the Savior, 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.

About this song: On Christmas Eve, Christians across the world gather to sing, to be reminded of the gift of Jesus, the Christ. As we stand with candles lit and sing, we are reminded of the light that has come into the world in the humblest of ways. Few songs capture the awe of that moment. The realization that the King is here, for me, for you, and there He is asleep in a manger.
