Back translation 


Night in rest, holy night, 
All are sleeping, lonesome watching 
The holy parents and the holy-live babychild, 
That came to us to our world. 
Child of God, sleep now well! 
Child of God, sleep now well! 

Night in rest, holy night, 
Gardians are listening to His good news 
From the joyful song sung from up high, 
The heavenly hosts glorify God in the heights, 
O Lord, save us from Death! 
O Lord, save us from Death!
