Oíche Chiúin

Original Silent Night lyrics by Joseph Mohr.
Irish version from a poem by Máire Áine Nic Gearailt

Oíche Chiúin

Silent Night

Oíche chiúin, oíche Mhic Dé, Silent night, night of God's Son,
Cách 'na suan, dís araon, Everyone is asleep, the Holy couple huddle together,
Dís is dílse 'faire le spéis, Obedient parents watchful with affection,
Naíon beag gnaoi-gheal, ceananntais caomh, A small beautifully bright Infant, blazing star, dear One,
Críost, 'na chodladh go séimh, Christ, gently sleeping,
Críost, 'na chodladh go sámh. Christ, peacefully sleeping.
Oíche chiúin, oíche Mhic Dé, Silent night, night of God's Son,
Aoirí ar dtús 'chuala an scéal; Shepherds first heard the news,
Allelúia aingil ag glaoch, Angels calling Alleluia,
Cantain shuairc i ngar is i gcéin. Gloriously chanting near and far,
Críost an slánaitheoir féin, Christ, the Savior, Himself,
Críost an slánaitheoir féin. Christ, the Savior, Himself.
