Kate,
I would also appreciate an emailed copy at [email]ksmck1@att.net.[/email] I've been trying to remember the tune and words to teach a singing group I'm in. Thank you so much! Karen

O'er the moonlit plains are angels winging
From a realm afar glad tidings bringing
See their robes of glistening white and gold
Reflecting a celestial light.
Silent, silent night. Holy, holy night
Sleep in peace, sleep in heavenly peace
In peace.

Silent, silent night. Holy, holy night
Sleep in peace, sleep in heavenly peace

Descant lyrics for Silent Night

Post by Kyaw Soe » Tue Dec 18, 2012 11:22 pm

This is our favourite Christmas carol in Burma - it's called "O NIGHT OF HOLY MEMORY". The ladies will lead first and the gents will compliment with the words in brackets.

'Neath the silent stars a town is sleeping
(Silent Night)
Shepherds on the hills their watch a-keeping
(Holy Night)
Their flocks are safe within the fold
(All is calm)
Secure from danger want or cold
(All is bright)
Silent Silent Night
(Round yon virgin, mother and child)
Holy Holy Night
(Holy infant so tender and mild)
Sleep in peace
(Sleep in heavenly peace)
Sleep in heavenly peace, in peace
(Sleep in heavenly peace).

O'er the moonlit plains angels are singing
(Silent Night)
From the realm afar glad tidings bringing
(Holy Night)
We see their robes of glistening white
(Son of God)
Reflecting a celestial light
(Love's pure light)
Silent Silent Night
(Radiant beams from thy holy face)
Holy Holy Night
(With the dawn of redeeming grace)
Sleep in peace
(Jesus Lord at thy birth)
Sleep in heavenly peace, in peace
(Jesus Lord at thy birth).

Try it out and let me know how you go.

Please pray for Burma and her citizens. Love, peace, stay safe and God bless

The version I remember is:

Beneath the silent skies the town is sleeping.
The sheep are safe within the fold.
They're safe from danger fear and cold.
Si-lent, silent night.
Ho-ly, holy night.
sleep in peace.
Silent, Holy night.......Sleep in peace.

I sang this in elementary school - New Brunswick, NJ gosh musta been around '62 or '63. It's making me teary to learn that other folks remember this song! I've been wanting to hear someone sing it like we did - half the chorus sang Neath the Silent Stars & the other half sang Silent Night. Just beautiful harmony!!!

Neath the silent stars a town is sleeping.
Flocks are safe within the fold.
Secure from danger want or cold.
Silent, Silent night
Holy, Holy night.
Sleep in peace.
Sleep in heavenly peace.
In peace
:)

I just read that this is called:

O Night of Holy Memory
Words by George O. Webster
Arrangement by Ira B. Wilson

Beautiful version by George Smith, a Gospel Christmas on itunes, if you want to hear it.
