Silent Night: The Story Behind the Song

Do you know the story behind the Christmas song, Silent Night? On Christmas Eve in 1818, Pastor Joseph Mohr had a problem: His church’s organ was broken. Worried about how to celebrate Christ’s birth without music, he found a poem he had written and brought it to his organist. The organist spontaneously put the words to music using his guitar. In just a few short hours, “Silent Night” was composed. If you’re feeling at a loss about something, find the song God has placed in your heart.

The Lyrics to Silent Night

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born

[Verse 3]
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

Mayda Mart wishes everyone a very safe and Merry Christmas!
