“Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”


Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,

God of glory, Lord of love;

Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee,

opening to 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.


You are giving and forgiving,

ever blessing, ever blessed,

Wellspring of the joy of living,

ocean depth of happy rest.

Loving Spirit, Father, Mother,

all who love belong to you;

Teach us how to love each other,

by that love our joy renew.


Mortals, join the mighty chorus

which the morning stars began;

Boundless love is reigning o’er us,

reconciling race and clan.

Ever singing, march we onward,

faithful in the midst of strife,

Joyful music leads us sunward

in the triumph song of life.   Amen.
