    "Silent Night" in Gaelic

    Do you know where I can find the sheet music for "Silent Night" in Gaelic, or would you be willing to reply with the lyrics to the first verse hyphenated into syllables? Thanks.

    Scottish or Irish?
    Here's the Scots Gaelic lyrics: http://www.silentnight.web.za/translate/scotgael.htm
    and the Irish lyrics: http://www.silentnight.web.za/translate/irish.htm

    To help with actually singing, I can find a few videos of people singing in Irish, but none in Scots Gaelic:

    I've seen the lyrics. I need help breaking the text into the right syllables so I can print the song.

    absolutely beautiful

    My daughter is mentally and physically disabled and at this time of year she always wants me to sing Christmas carols to her ... Silent Night is one of her very favourites and she loves to sign along as I sing. My grandfather use to speak Irish Gaelic to my twin brother and I when we were wee lads.......and then he would laugh because we didn't understand what he said........ Hearing Silent night sung in Irish Gaelic by such an incredible voice brought tears to my eyes and a wish that I could sing it this way to my daughter.......Thank-you so much for sharing it....it has really awakened my Christmas spirit

    I emailed the Gaelic college on Skye & someone there sent me the syllablized first verse of the carol in Scots Gaelic.
