Joyful, joyful we adore Thee,
God of glory, Lord of love,
Hearts unfold like flowers 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,
flow'ry meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain
call us to rejoice in Thee.

Thou art giving and forgiving,
ever blessing, ever blest,
Wellspring of the joy of living,
ocean depth of happy rest.
Thou our 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 o'er 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.

Thanks for the song and lyrics. We will sing the song at our best friend's wonderful & joyful wedding day in a church. God Bless you! Thanks GOD!
Thank you for this fantastic site, and for your great music. Last Christmas (my senior year in high school), I wrote and directed the Children's Christmas Program at my church. When I started looking for music to use, I knew I wanted the traditonal songs but with a new sound. I found just that on your website. The show was a hit and the music was outstanding! Thanks again,
