Silent Night Lyrics – Christmas Carol

Silent Night Lyrics – Christmas Carol: ‘Silent Night’ is a popular Christmas carol that originated in Austria. The original German title is “Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,” and it was written by Joseph Mohr in 1816, with the music composed by Franz Xaver Gruber in 1818.

The carol has been translated into many languages and is sung around the world during the Christmas season. The song is known for its peaceful and calming melody, reflecting the quiet and serene atmosphere of the night of Christ’s birth. Its universal message of peace and the simple beauty of its melody contribute to its enduring popularity.

The English translation of ‘Silent Night’ is often attributed to John Freeman Young. He was an Episcopal clergyman in the United States who translated the lyrics from the original German into English in 1859. Young’s translation is the one that is most commonly used in English-speaking countries today.

While there have been other translations and adaptations over the years, Young’s version has endured as the standard English translation for ‘Silent Night’.
