Silent Night!

AS Silent Night is the most famous Christmas carol of all time; it is no wonder that next to Away in a Manager it is one of the first Christmas carols that we learn as youngesters.

It is interesting that the origins of Silent Night are a result of an unfortunate event. In 1818 the organ of St Nicholas Church located in Obernoff broke. Joseph Mohr, an Austrian Priest had writen silent Night as a poem in 1816. He gave this to his friend Franz Xavier Gruber who composed the music for guitar. It thenwas played for the midnight mass.

Silent Night -Lyrics and Verses

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 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 “
