The lyrics (words) to Silent Night:

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
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from Heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Hallelujah
Christ the Saviour is born
Christ the Saviour is born

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

    Thanks for the clean clear easy to read and very professional looking music. I needed Christmas hymns for a friend to play a french horn at a party. Your site is a wonderful resource. Thanks a bunch!

    I don't know how to thank you for giving such help to those of us who are trying our best but don't have the skills to create the music for the parts. I am a missionary in Japan and recently, we have new young adults attending who want to part of the worship band, and I've been trying to figure out how to pull it all together. Thank you so much!!!!

    I have installed the Sibelius plugin for Firefox. The plugin now shows, but the music score does not. <br />Clicking the PDF link downloads a .sib doc, which Firefox can open. It would be nice if the plugin worked on the web page itself rather than me having to go through separate steps.
