World Of Christmas
Here are lyrics of the Christmas carol 'Silent Night'. Austrian Joseph Mohr penned it and Franz Xavier Gruber composed the soft music for this Christmas song.

Silent Night!

'Silent Night' was originally penned as a poem by an Austrian priest called Joseph Mohr in 1816. In 1818, on Christmas Eve in 1818, the organ at St. Nicholas Church in the small alpine village called Oberndorf had broken. It was at that time, a friend of Joseph Mohr, Franz Xavier Gruber composed the melody of the poem in mind and it was intended for a guitar. Since the simple score was finished in time for Midnight Mass, it was sung there and then and eventually became the most famous Christmas carol!

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.
