Leise rieselt der Schnee

Leise rieselt der Schnee,
Still und starr ruht der See,
Weihnachtlich glänzet der Wald.
Freue dich, Christkind kommt bald!
 
In den Herzen ist's warm,
Still schweigt Kummer und Harm,
Sorge des Lebens verhallt.
Freue dich, Christkind kommt bald!
 
's Kindlein, göttlich und arm,
Macht die Herzen so warm.
Strahle, du Stern überm Wald!
Freue dich, Christkind kommt bald!
 
Bald ist Heilige Nacht,
Chor der Engel erwacht.
Hört nur, wie lieblich es schallt!
Freue dich, Christkind kommt bald!

The Snow Falls Quietly

Versions: #1#2
The snow falls quietly,
Silent and still lies the lake,
Christmas shines over the woods.
Rejoice, Christ child comes soon!
 
There is warmth in our hearts,
Free from sorrow and grief,
Worries in life disappear,
Rejoice, Christ child comes soon!
 
The child, divine and poor,
Makes the heart so warm,
Shine, you star above the forest,
Rejoice, Christ Child is coming soon!
 
Soon is Christmas night,
The choir of angels awake,
Listen how lovely it sounds:
Rejoice, Christ child comes soon!
 
Thanks!
