Silent Night Lyrics


(Sleep in heavenly peace)
(Sleep in heavenly peace)

Silent Night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
'Round yon virgin mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleeps in heavenly peace
Sleeps in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
'Round yon virgin mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleeps in heavenly peace
Sleeps in heavenly peace

Silent Night
  • Halfway through December 1818, the church organ in St. Nicholas in Oberndorf, 11 miles north of Salzburg in what is now Austria, broke (a popular version of the story claims that mice had eaten out the bellows). The curate, 26-year-old Josef Mohr, realized it couldn't be repaired in time to provide music on Christmas Eve. He told his troubles to his friend, a headmaster and amateur composer named Franz Gruber, while giving him as a present a poem he had written two years earlier. Gruber was so taken by the rhythm of the poem that he set it to music, and on Christmas Eve there was music after all. Mohr played his guitar while the pair sang the song. It was the first public performance of "Stille Nacht" or as we know it "Silent Night."
  • It is believed that the carol has been translated into over 300 languages around the world, and it is one of the most popular carols of all time.
  • Bing Crosby's version became his best-seller of the 1930s.
  • Music licensing company PPL announced in December 2010 that this carol tops the list of Britain's "most recorded Christmas song of all time." Said Mike Dalby, Lead Reporting Analyst at PPL: "Silent Night is a beautiful carol which encapsulates the feeling of Christmas entirely. Everyone from punk band The Dickies right through to Sinead O'Connor has recorded it, which exemplifies just how much it resonates with all different types of artists."

    According to PPL, Sinead O'Connor's 1991 recording was the most popular version of the carol in Britain.
