Lyrics
Silent Night
SPOKEN Intro: "To you the man, woman, the child we have never met but think of as a friend, this is Nelson Eddy wishing you a Christmas complete with the excitement and pleasure of giving and receiving presents and warm and inspiring with its spiritual beauty. May the coming year bring this blessed land of ours a little closer to that day of eternal Christmas, that day of peace on earth."

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 Saviour is born!
Christ the Saviour is born!
