Oie sheoil

This is a Manx version of the popular and well-known Christmas carol, Silent Night, which was originally written in German.

Oie sheoil

Oie sheoil, cadley dagh nhee,

paithey casherick, lesh y folt airh

Oie sheoil, er-nyn-skyn

freayll dy-kinjagh arrey geyre,
er y phaitchey lesh y folt airh
goaill e aash ayns shee,
goaill e aash ayns shee.

Oie sheoil s’feagh dagh nhee
„Shee er thalloo, aigney Yee”
sho ta’n Bab er jeet dy ghra
lhig dooin eisht ve booisal da,
choud’s t’eh lhieayns shee,
choud’s t’eh lhieayns shee.
