This song is set to the tune of the traditional Christian song, "Silent Night," and was adapted by Ellen Reed to become UU Hymn 251. We found it in John Halstead's description of his Family Winter Solstice Ritual, replaced the third verse, and sang it at the Longest Night Masquerade.

Si – lent night, Sol – stice Night
All is calm, gone is light
Na - ture slum – bers in for – est and glen
