Joyful, Joyful




Erste Version:

Englische Übersetzung der Hymne "Freude Schöner Götterfunken (9. Sinfonie)




Ludwig van Beethoven, Henry van Dyke


Samuel Ljungblahd (Hochzeit des schwedischen Prinzen)


Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee
God of Glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flow'rs before Thee
Op'ning 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

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
Well-spring 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 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
