Hungarian term or phrase: Csendes éj
Csendes éj, szentséges éj,
A világ álma mély,
Csak a Szent Szûz van még ébren,
Kis Jézussal az ölében,
Ringatgatja csendben:
Aludj édes gyermekem!

Just wanted to also check if this could be acceptable as a translation of the Christmas song Silent Night (German: Stille Nacht)? In other words are there any words in this alternative translation contradictory of it being a Christmas song?
