Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee lyrics - Hymn with Piano Music (Accurate)

Apostle Quinson Thomas Apostle Quinson Thomas

Henry Van Dyke

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,

Singing bird and flowing fountain

Call us to rejoice in Thee.

Verse 3

Thou art giving and forgiving,

Ever blessing, ever blessed,

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.

Verse 4

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 leads us Sunward

In the triumph song of life.

I loved playing Joyful, Joyful, as a little boy growing up, especially since I knew the music was composed by Beethoven. Whether it was on the organ or on the piano, this hymn was a delight to play during Church services or just for my personal enjoyment. May we be joyful in our worship to God knowing that the joy of the Lord is our strength. May the Lord Jesus Christ be glorified as you read and sing this hymn, in Jesus' mighty Name Amen.
