About

The original lyrics of the song Stille Nacht were written in German by the Austrian priest Father Josef Mohr, and the melody was composed by the Austrian headmaster Franz Xaver Gruber. The version of the melody that is generally sung today (as in this version) differs slightly from Gruber's original. The English translation in this version is by John Freeman Young.
