Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee

We sing in jubilation, adoration to a joyful King
You are holy and You are singing
Zealous love over all Your children

Verse 1:
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

Verse 2:
All Thy works with joy surround Thee, earth and heaven reflect Thy rays
Stars and angels sing around Thee, Center of unbroken praise
Field and forest, vale and mountain, flowery meadow, flashing sea
Chanting bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in Thee

Verse 3:
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
