1  Oh Night, lovely Night,
Thou art holy and calm,
Thy cool Dewy breath
To the worn brow is balm.
The day with its heat,
And o'erladen with care,
Toils onward and pants,
That thy rest he may share.
Lovely Night, holy Night.

2  Oh Night, gentle Night,
With thy twilight so soft;
The moon's grateful ray,
Myriad peeping eyes aloft!
Thy soul breathing air,
Stealing o'er us so light,
A rich boon art thou,
Lovely Night, holy Night.
