Silent Night, Holy Night!

Silent Night - Dawel Nos

There are lots of different Welsh language translations of Silent Night, but I've gone with the 1918 version by J.C. Jones as it's my favourite. The literal translation back into English goes something like:

Silent Night! Holy Night!
All is clear, Heaven is beautiful;
Above the baby of the Madonna,
Holy child so tender, immaculate,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace!

Silent Night! Holy Night!
The flock trembles on the moor!
Great rushes from Heaven up high,
Angels sing Alleluia!
Christ the Custodian who Came,
Christ the Custodian who Came!

Silent Nightfall! Holy Nightfall!
True Son of God, absolute love,
Radiance beams from thy Holy countenance,
With the dawn of thy redeeming peace,
Jesus received in a manger,
Jesus received in a manger!
