Haydn's "Holy Night."

By Elsa D'Esterre-Keeling.
Volume 2, 1891/92, pgs. 721-722


(From the German.)

Stilly night, holy night!
All enjoy sleep's delight,
Save the happy, thrice hallowed pair.
Lovely Boy, with the curly hair,
Sleep in heavenly rest,
Sleep in heavenly rest.

Stilly night, holy night!
Shepherds first felt delight.
Hallelujah! the angels sing out;
All the heavens for joy do shout:
Jesus the Saviour is there!

Stilly night, holy night!
Son of God, oh, delight!
Love laughs victor in Thine eyes;
We are saved, the whole world cries,
Jesus, in birth of Thee!
