Irish lyrics:

Don oíche úd i mBeithil
Beidh tagairt fé ghrian go brách.
Don oíche úd i mBeithil
Go dtáinig an Briathar slán

Tá gríosghrua ar spéartha,
's an talamh 'na chlúdach bán.
Féach Íosagán sa chléibhín,
's an Mhaighdean á dhúil le grá.

Ar leacain lom an tsléibhe,
Go nglacann na haoirí scáth,
Nuair in oscailt gheal na spéire
Tá teachtaire Dé ar fail :

'Céad glóir anois don Athair,
i bhFlaitheasa thuas go hard .
Is feasta fós ar talamh,
D'fheara dea-mhéin, Síothcháin'.


English lyrics:

I sing of a night in Bethlehem
A night as bright as dawn
I sing of that night in Bethlehem
The night the Word was born
The skies are glowing gaily
The earth in white is dressed
See Jesus in the cradle
Drink deep in His mother's breast
And there on a lonely hillside
The shepherds bow down in fear
When the heavens open brightly
And God's message rings out so clear
Glory now to the Father
In all the heavens high
And peace to His friends on earth below
Is all the angels cry
