Description

Respectful of the timeless purity of Beethoven’s HYMN TO JOY melody, this creative setting incorporates fresh harmonies and engaging rhythmic motifs that underscore the worshipful enthusiasm of Henry Van Dyke’s cherished hymn text “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee.” Opening quietly with an optional solo, intensity gradually builds throughout the piece and culminates in the addition of an optional second vocal part for the final two stanzas. Great for older elementary choirs or any choir of treble voices.

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, Singing bird and flowing fountain Call us to rejoice in Thee. Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, Joyful, joyful, we adore 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 happy chorus, Which the morning stars began; Father love is reigning o’er us, Binding all within its span. Ever singing, march we onward, Victors in the midst of strife, Joyful music leads us Sunward In the triumph song of life. Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee (Sing unto the Lord) Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee (Sing unto the Lord) We adore Thee, Lord of love!
