Scripture verse: Psalm 132: 4-5
Still, Still, Still is an Austrian Christmas carol and lullaby. In German its first line is Still, still, still, weil's Kindlein schlafen will! (Hush, hush, hush, for the little child wants to sleep!)The melody is a folk tune from Salzburg. The tune appeared for the first time in 1865 in a folksong collection. The words have changed but the modern Standard German version remains attributed to Georg Götsch (1895–1956). There are various English translations.
