91. Silent Night

1 Silent night! hallowed night!
Land and deep silent sleep,
Softly glitters bright Bethlehem's star,
Beckoning Israel's eye from afar,
Where the Savior is born.
Where the Savior is born.

2 Silent night! hallowed night!
On the plain wakes the strain.
Sung by heavenly harbingers bright,
Filled with tidings of boundless delight,
Jesus, the Savior, has come.
Jesus, the Savior, has come.

3 Silent night! hallowed night!
Earth, awake! silence break!
High your chorus of melody raise,
Sing to heaven in anthems of praise,
Peace forever shall reign.
Peace forever shall reign.
