Can Someone Help with the Pennsylvania Dutch Version of “Silent Night” ASAP?

Pastor Richard Lowe wrote:

One of the members of one of the churches I pastor went to be with with the Lord suddenly and unexpectedly yesterday. He once sang the first verse of Silent Night in church in Pa Dutch. I do not remember it as the German pronunciations I had heard previously. Would anyone be able to share a ‘phonic’ representation of this for me? I would like to remember in sharing at the service of life and resurrection Friday Mar 7, 2008.

If anyone can help Pastor Lowe, please comment below.

Thanks in advance.

    Contact Carl at Huff’s Union Church in Barto, PA. He’ll be able to give you some info. He is/was the Hauptmann of the Local Grundsow Lodsch.
