Oiche Chiun - Lyrics in Irish Gaelic

Oiche Chiuin, oiche Mhic De,
Cach 'na suan dis araon,
Dis is dilse 'faire le speis
Naoin beag gnaoigheal
Ceananntais caomh

Criost, 'na chodhladh go seimh.
Criost, 'na chodhladh go seimh.

Oiche Chiuin, oiche Mhic De,
Aoiri ar dtus chuala 'n sceal;
Alleluia aingeal ag glaoch.
Cantain suairc i ngar is i gcein.

Criost an Slanaitheoir Fein.
Criost an Slanaitheoir Fein.

Oiche Chiuin, oiche Mhic De,
Cach 'na suan dis araon,
Dis is dilse 'faire le speis
Naoin beag gnaoigheal
Ceananntais caomh

Criost, 'na chodhladh go seimh.
Criost, 'na chodhladh go seimh.
English Translation

Silent night, night of God's Son,
Soundly in slumber the pair together,
The pair and love, watching with affection
The small bright beautiful child
darling little one

Christ, calmly asleep.
Christ, calmly asleep.

Silent night, night of God's Son,
Shepherds first heard the tale;
The angels crying out Alleluia.
Lovely chanting near and far.

Christ the Saviour himself.
Christ the Saviour himself.

Silent night, night of God's Son,
Soundly in slumber the pair together,
The pair and love, watching with affection
The small bright beautiful child
darling little one

Christ, calmly asleep.
Christ, calmly asleep.
