Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,
God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flow'rs before Thee,
Hail Thee as the sun above,
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness,
Fill us with the light of day!

All Thy works with joy surround Thee.
Earth and heav'n reflect Thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee
Center of unbroken praise
Field and forest, vale and mountain
Blossoming meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain
Call us to rejoice in Thee

You bring us joy, joy, joy, we adore Thee {repeat}

Thou art giving and forgiving
Ever blessing, ever blest!
Wellspring of the joy of living,
Ocean depth of happy rest!
Thou the Father, Christ our brother
All who live in love are Thine
Teach us how to love each other,
Lift us to the joy divine

Mortals, join the mighty chorus
Which the morning stars began;
Father love is reigning over us,
Brother love binds man to man,

Ever singing, march we onward,
Victors in the midst of strife;
Joyful music lifts us sunward
In the triumph song of life

You bring us joy, joy, joy, we adore Thee {repeat}
