My Younger Sister's Favorite Christmas Carol

I know, I know! It isn't Sunday but I didn't do my younger sister, Bekah's favorite Christmas carol. I put My favorite (it is also my brother's), my mom's, my older sister's, and my dad's so just this once I am posting a hymn on another day of the week.

Silent Night
by Josef Mohr
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 Alleluia!
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior 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.

Silent night, holy night
Wondrous star, lend thy light;
With the angels let us sing,
Alleluia to our King;
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born!

“There were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them.”
Luke 2:8-9

Such a beautiful carol! I especially love the phrase "with the dawn of redeeming grace".
