1. Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Alles schläft; einsam wacht
Nur das traute hochheilige Paar.
Holder Knabe im lockigen Haar,
Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh!

2. Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Gottes Sohn! O wie lacht
Lieb´ aus deinem göttlichen Mund,
Da schlägt uns die rettende Stund´.
Jesus in deiner Geburt!

3. Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Die der Welt Heil gebracht,
Aus des Himmels goldenen Höhn
Uns der Gnaden Fülle läßt seh´n
Jesum in Menschengestalt.

4. Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Wo sich heut alle Macht
Väterlicher Liebe ergoß
Und als Bruder huldvoll umschloß
Jesus die Völker der Welt.

5. Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Lange schon uns bedacht,
Als der Herr vom Grimme befreit,
In der Väter urgrauer Zeit
Aller Welt Schonung verhieß.

6. Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Hirten erst kundgemacht
Durch der Engel Hallelujah,
Tönt es laut von Ferne und Nah:
Jesus der Retter ist da!

Spanish.png Spanish translation

Noche de paz, noche de amor,
Paz entre los mas fuertes,
Fraternidad entre los mayores.
Amor para los mas pequenos.
Ternura para los mas débiles.
Jesus para todos.

Italian.png Italian translation

Astro del Ciel, Pargol Divin
Mite Agnello, Redentor
Tu che i vati da lungi sognar
Tu che angeliche voci annunziar
Luce dona alle genti, pace infondi nei cuor

Astro del Ciel, Pargol Divin
Mite Agnello, Redentor
Tu disceso a scontare l'error,
Tu sol nato a parlare d'amor
Luce dona alle genti, pace infondi nei cuor

English.png English translation

1. 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.

2. 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!

3. 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.

4. Silent night, holy night
Wondrous star, lend thy light;
With the angels let us sing,
Alleluia to our King;
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born!

French.png French translation

Belle nuit, douce nuit,
une étoile nous conduit
à l'étable de l'Enfant
qui vient de naître maintenant
Sur l'humide paille
dans la nuit en plein vent.

Petit Enfant, tout souriant
nous t'apportons ces présents
prends ces bonbons, prends ces joujoux
ces belles images
souris et bénis nous.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Csendes éj, szentséges éj!
Mindenek nyugta mély,
Nincs fenn más, csak a szent szülepár,
Drága kisdedük álmainál,
Szent Fiú, aludjál!

Csendes éj, szentséges éj!
Angyalok hangja kél;
Halld a mennyei halleluját,
Szerte zengi e drága szavát:
Krisztus megszabadít!

Csendes éj, szentséges éj!
Szív örülj, higgy, remélj!
Isten szent Fia hinti reád
Ajka vigaszadó mosolyát:
Krisztus megszületett!

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Stille nacht, heilige nacht,
alles slaapt, sluimert zacht.
Eenzaam waakt het hoogheilige paar,
Lieflijk kindje met goud in het haar,
sluimert in hemelse rust,
sluimert in hemelse rust.

Stille nacht, heilige nacht,
Zoon van God! Liefde lacht,
vriend'lijk om Uwe Godd'lijke mond,
nu ons slaat de heilige stond,
Jezus de Redder is daar,
Jezus de Redder is daar.

Stille nacht, heilige nacht,
herders zien 't eerst uw pracht.
Door de engelen alleluja,
galmt het luide van verre en na,
Jezus de Redder ligt daar,
Jezus de Redder ligt daar.

Glade jul, dejlige jul,
engle daler ned i skjul!
Hid de flyver med paradisgrønt,
hvor de ser, hvad for Gud er kønt,
lønlig iblandt os de går,
- lønlig iblandt os de går!

Julefryd, evige fryd,
hellig sang med himmelsk lyd!
Det er englene, hyrderne så,
dengang Herren i krybben lå,
evig er englenes sang,
- evig er englenes sang.

Fred på jord, fryd på jord,
Jesusbarnet blandt os bor!
Engle sjunger om barnet så smukt,
han har Himmerigs dør oplukt,
salig er englenes sang,
- salig er englenes sang.

Salig fred, himmelsk fred
toner julenat herned!
Engle bringer til store og små
bud om ham, som i krybben lå;
fryd dig, hver sjæl, han har frelst,
- fryd dig, hver sjæl, han har frelst!

Noite feliz! noite feliz!
Ó Senhor, deus de amor
Pobrezinho nasceu em Belém
Eis na lapa Jesus, nosso bem;
Dorme em paz, ó Jesus!

Noite feliz! noite feliz!
Ó Jesus, deus da luz
Quão afável é teu coração
Pois quiseste nascer nosso irmão
E a nós todos salvar!

Noite feliz! noite feliz!
Eis no ar vem cantar
Aos pastores, os anjos do céu
Anunciando a vinda de Deus
De Jesus Salvador!
