Don Oíche Úd I mBeithil lyrics

by Celtic Woman

Don oíche úd i mBeithil,
Beidh tagairt ar 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 in aoibhneas grá

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

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

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
