Enya - Oíche Chiúin (Silent Night) Lyrics

Oiche chiuin, oiche Mhic De
Cach 'na suan dis araon
Dis is dilse 'faire le speis
Naion beag, leanbh ceansa 'gus caomh

Criost, 'na chodladh go samh
Criost, 'na chodladh go samh

Oiche chiuin, oiche Mhic De
Aoiri are dtus chuala 'n sceal
Alleluia aingeal ag glaoch
Cantain suairc I ngar is I gcein

Criost an Slanaitheoir Fein
Criost an Slanaitheoir Fein

Oiche chiuin, oiche Mhic De
Cach 'na suan dis araon
Dis is dilse 'faire le speis
Naion beag, leanbh ceansa 'gus caomh

Criost, 'na chodladh go samh
Criost, 'na chodladh go samh

    My favourite version of my favourite carol.

  5. Robert Arnold

    I dont speak the language but I still love this version of the song the best.

    Brian Runyon

    Agreed. Also like it in German as well as in Irish and English. Same goes for O Come All Ye Faithful in either English or Latin.

  6. Thomas O'Reilly

    Love this breaks my heart when Enya sings lost my two litttle boys in the space of 4 years , both at Christmas time .

    Chris Cox

    So,so very sorry for your tragic loss.

  7. D van de Weerd

  9. Antony Hamer


  10. Martin Cross

    This is Gail I can't stop crying. I cry at this song every time and this time is no different. I miss my love so very much. 4 years and it still hurts so very much.

    Robert Dee

    Hold on! I did. One has to, really. For the other, if nobody else. The burden is to make invisible people proud of us. Best wishes from me.

    Roger Newcomb

    Keep your heart open and the blessings will heal both of you...

  11. Taiscéalaí

    Go hálainn agus go raibh maith agat as seo. Ní féidir linn ligean don teanga bás a fháil. Tá sé mar chuid de cé muid féin

  12. Adrozarn Mischievik

    Been looking for this song for so long

  13. melodies2013

    A real treat, today is 1 October 2019.
    Am starting to learn (a little) Gaelic from this very video.
    Hopefully it will add up to something by Christmas ... :)

  14. Ricardo Batista

    I'm speechless. Simply incredible. 🙏👏👏👏👏🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷

  15. Spondivits Lancaster

    It's good that she sings in"Irish Gaelic"the language faces possible extinction in the future due to the fact that only 3% of Ireland's population actually speaks it as their first language!!!Ireland is technically a bilingual country but english is hands down the dominant language of most daily affairs in the country itself etc.

  16. Thomas Hernandez

    What 19 people voted this down?

  17. Monika Bylicka-Sumara

    What is this language???


    Irish Gaelic

  18. Ian McGreevy

    First heard two hundred years ago today on 24/12/1818

    John Barnes

    I was there

  19. Michael Kuecker

    Isn't the Irish language beautiful?

  20. Linnaeus

    God bless you, Enya. This touches all of our souls. This is Christmas to me and it opens my heart.

  21. Trisha Urvan

    Damn this is pretty, so very ethereal. Gaelic is a BEAUTIFUL language!

    Auntie Carol

    It is not quite so lovely when you have it (the language) beaten into you.
    30 years since I set my feet on Irish soil, and I'll never go back.

  22. David parkin

    "Silent Night" (German: "Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht") was composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr.....sung here to perfection by enya.

  23. Trevor Voisey

    Simple and beautiful, a lot more pleasant than modern over the top renditions

  24. The Forgotten Nationalist


  25. Linnaeus

    Enya's first language is Gaelic. She was born in a Gaelic speaking part of Donegal. There is a great interview on youtube with her family in Gaelic. Awesome musical family. I adore Enya.

  26. andyguy0610

    utterly wonderful :-)

  27. Michael

    Fantastic. This is my favorite carol and hearing it in Gaelic makes it all the more sentimental.

  28. annie

    SOMEBODY RESPOND!!! I’m doing a school project for Christmas in Scotland...is this in Scottish?

    Helena Eriksson

    It's Irish


    Nope it’s Irish :)

    Dawn E

    It's Irish Gaelic, similar but not the same as Scots Gaelic.

  29. Josep santer perez

    La paz en esta noche es más auténtica oyendo a esta mujer.

  33. Franco Tosi

    Perché hanno tagliato gli auguri? andate su https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7ThedzFKdM

  34. Franco Tosi

    Una voce angelica e gentile. Una cosa mi ha colpito: la sua dolce somiglianza a volti italiani o francesi o balcanici mostra quanto sia assurda questa divisione e separazione. Buon natale a tutti :-)

  35. ricardo ernesto mendoza quintero

    Beautiful voice!

  36. Nicoletta Parrino


  37. CaitlinK nee Welch

    Evelyn Mullane

    Christopher Smallbone she says dís is daoilse which is pronounced like deesh is deelsha so it sounds like Jesus

    Not weird at all, for one who has an open heart...

  91. d57z12

    Tingles up the spine and a tear in the eye. What a beautiful rendition. Definitely good for the soul. Thank you Enya, may you live long and prosper. You bring so much joy to we mere mortals.

    Even though you are far away from home and all alone, and there are no lights on a non-existent Christmas tree, someone is thinking of you...may next year be brighter, fairer, better in every way for you Carmarthan415....and I'm glad that YouTube and lovely Enya are here as a small light of joy to you..

  95. Zaro Yamato

    Enya's voice has no boundaries. She can sing in any language and still makes you feel in heaven.
