Silent, Silent Night

Silent, silent night,<br>
Quench the holy light<br>
Of thy torches bright;<br>
<br>
For possessed of Day<br>
Thousand spirits stray<br>
That sweet joys betray.<br>
<br>
Why should joys be sweet<br>
Used with deceit,<br>
Nor with sorrows meet?<br>
<br>
But an honest joy<br>
Does itself destroy<br>
For a harlot coy.
