Ruhe, heilige Nacht!
Dämmerig scheint der Mond.
Süß ist, o Mädchen, dein Kuß
Während der ruhigen Nacht.

Freundin, im Dunkel der Nacht
Wie kann ich traurig noch sein?
Hell wie die Sterne bist du
Während der ruhigen Nacht.

Freundin, die Sterne sind schön.
Und auch die Trauer ist süß;
Du bist das Liebste mir doch
Während der heiligen Nacht.

Riposa, o notte santa!
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Riposa, o notte santa!
In penombra brilla la luna.
Dolce, o fanciulla, è il tuo bacio
durante la notte tranquilla.

O amica, nel buio della notte
come posso essere ancora triste?
Splendente come le stelle sei tu
durante la notte tranquilla.

O amica, le stelle sono belle
e anche la tristezza è dolce,
ma tu sei per me la più amata
durante la notte tranquilla.
