Nineteen fifteem on Christmas Day on western front the guns all died away
And laying in the mud on bags of sand we heard the German sing from no man's land
He had tenor voice so pure and true the words were strange but every note we knew
Soaring o're the the living dead and dammed the German sang of peace from no man's land

They left their trenches and we left ours beneath tin hats the smiles bloomed like wild flowers
With photos, cigarettes and pots of wine we bult a soldier's truce on the front line
Their singer was a lad of twenty one, we begged another song before the dawn
And sitting in the mud and blood and fear he sang again the song all longed to hear

Silent night, no cannons roar
A king is born of peace for evermore
All's calm, all's bright, all brothers hand in hand
In nineteen and fifteen in no man's land

And in the morning all guns boomed in the rain and we killed them and they killed us again
At night they charged we fought them hand to hand and I killed the boy that sang in no man's land

Silent night, no cannons roar
A king is born of peace for evermore
All's calm, all's bright, all brothers hand in hand
And that young soldier sings and the song of peace still rings
Though the captains and all the kings built no man's land

Sleep in heavenly peace
