Blog Caroling 2010

The FootnoteMaven has challenged geneabloggers to post the lyrics to their favorite Christmas carols.  I have so many favorites it was hard to pick just one!  But I decided on Silent Night, it has been a favorite of mine since I was a child.

Silent Night : Lyrics

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 "

Lyrics from Christmas Carols.
