Stille nacht, heilige nacht

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Stille nacht, heilige nacht,
Alles slaapt, sluimert zacht.
Eenzaam waakt het hoogheilige paar,
Lieflijk Kindje met goud in het haar,
Sluimert in hemelse rust
Sluimert in hemelse rust.

Stille nacht, heilige nacht
Zoon van God, liefde lacht
Vriend'lijk om Uwe Godd'lijke mond,
Nu ons slaat de reddende stond,
Jezus van Uwe geboort',
Jezus van Uwe geboort'.

Stille nacht, heilige nacht,
Herders zien 't eerst Uw pracht;
Door der eng'len alleluja
Galmt het luide van verre en na:
Jezus de Redder ligt daar,
Jezus de Redder ligt daar.
