My greeting to you – Merry Christmas! [Chinese version of Silent Night 平安夜]

Posted by Grace Feng on December 24, 2012

Today is the Silent Night before the arrival of Christmas. My family and I just returned from our trip to celebrate this auspicious night. A half-hour drive after we crossed the border, we entered the beautiful night view of Toronto. Since it is holiday, houses in Toronto are decorated with holiday lights. Various buildings lit up holiday decorations. Driving all way down on highway, we were so fascinated by watching the sea of holiday lights! Then the song of Silent Night started to play in the radio while my two children let out joyful cries from the back seat. They finally fell asleep in the music.

In such a beautiful night, I hope each friend that I have met on “Just Learn Chinese” would be able to spend some time together with family and friends,  to get more warmth and see more colors of life in this holiday season. 

Let’s say good night to each other with the song of Silent Night!

Merry Christmas!

今天是圣诞到来之前的平安夜。我也和家人一起从旅途中返回,来庆祝这个祥和的夜晚。从美国过境回到加拿大,经过一个半小时的车程,我们就进入了多伦多美丽的夜景中。因为节日的缘故,多伦多的家家户户都挂上了彩灯。各种建筑物上也点亮了节日的装饰。一路从高速开下来,星星点点如梦幻般的灯光美景真让人陶醉! 在孩子们的欢叫声中,收音机里开始播放歌曲平安夜。随着歌声的响起,两个小家伙也开始进入梦乡。

 

在如此美丽的夜晚,我希望每一个在“中文吧”里认识的朋友们都能在这段节日的时光里,与家人朋友欢聚,感受到更多的温暖,看到生活中更多的色彩。

 

在此,让我们用平安夜的歌声互道晚安。

Merry Christmas!

平安夜

 

平安夜圣善夜 

万暗中光华射 

照着圣母也照着圣婴 

多少慈祥也多少天真 

静享天赐安眠 

静享天赐安眠 

平安夜圣善夜 

牧羊人在旷野 

忽然看见了天上光华 

听见天军唱哈利路亚 

救主今夜降生 

救主今夜降生

Silent Night

Silent night! Holy night!
All is calm all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace!
Sleep in heavenly peace!

Silent night! Holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Hallelujah
Christ the Saviour is born!
Christ the Saviour is born!

Silent night! Holy night!
Son of God love’s pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth.
