Adeste fideles, laeti triumphantes; venite, venite, in Bethlehem
Natum videte Regem angelorum
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus, venite adoremus, Dominum!
O come, all ye faithful, joyful, and triumphant
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him, born the King of angels
O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!
Sing choirs of angels, sing in exultation
O sing all you messengers of heavenly love
Glory to God, glory in the highest
O come let us adore Him…
Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht, Alles schlaft, einsam wacht
Nur das traute hochheilige Paar, Holder knabe im lockigen Haar
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh, Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!
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, child of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from His holy face
Bring the dawn of redeeming grace
Christ the Savior is born, Christ the Savior is born
