Stilla natt

This is a Swedish version of the popular and well-known Christmas carol, Silent Night, which was originally written in German.

Stilla natt

Stilla natt, heliga natt!
Allt är frid. Stjärnan blid
skiner på barnet i stallets strå
och de vakande fromma två.
Kristus till Jorden är kommen,
oss är en frälsare född.

Stora stund, heliga stund!
änglars här slår sin rund
kring de vaktande
herdars hjord,
rymden ljuder av glädjens ord:
Kristus till Jorden är kommen,
eder är Frälsaren född.

Stilla natt, heliga natt!
Mörkret flyr, dagen gryr.
för Världen slår,
nu begynner vårt jubelår.
Kristus till Jorden är kommen,
oss är en frälsare född.
