      Silent night!
      Peaceful night!
   Now the stars are gleaming bright:
Moonbeams rest on crag and tower—
Silvering stream and mead and bower.
      Silent, peaceful night!

      Holy Peace!
      Kindly Peace!
   Weary hands from toil release:
Weary hands from toil release:
Weary eyes now close in sleep—
Comfort give to them that weep.
      Comfort, rest, and peace!
