“Silent night (Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht)” Lyrics (German)

1. Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht!
Alles schläft, einsam wacht
Nur das traute, hochheilige Paar.
Holder Knabe im lockigen Haar,
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh,
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh.

2. Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht!
Gottes Sohn, o wie lacht
Lieb aus deinem göttlichen Mund,
Da uns schlägt die rettende Stund,
Christ, in deiner Geburt,
Christ, in deiner Geburt.

3. Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht!
Hirten erst kundgemacht,
Durch der Engel Halleluja.
Tönt es laut von fern und nah:
Christ, der Retter ist da,
Christ, der Retter ist da!

“Silent night” Lyrics (English)

1. 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

2. 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

3. 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 (Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht)” Teaching ideas

Why not introduce a second voice?!

Just hold singing -as a tenuta- the first note of every bar throughout the entire bar.

The result sounds like this: D— D— A— G— / E— D— E— D— / A— G— G-D- G—

At first, sing this melodic line along with the children.

At the second verse continue singing this line, while playing the original melody on an instrument (piano, guitar, etc) .

When they are ready to keep this voice on their own, the teacher starts to sing the melody.

Now they are ready to be divided in order to sing in two voices!
