362. JOYFUL, JOYFUL, WE ADORE THEE

 

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 heav'n 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

Thou art giving and forgiving
Ever blessing, ever blest
Wellspring of the joy of living
Oceandepth 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
