JOYFUL, JOYFUL (LYRICS)

Joyful, joyful, we adore You,

God of glory, Lord of love;

Hearts unfold like flowers before You,

Opening to the sun above.

Joyful, joyful, we adore You,

God of glory, Lord of love;

Hearts unfold like flowers before You,

Opening to the sun above.

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;

Drive the dark of doubt away;

Joyful, joyful, we adore You,

Hearts unfold like flowers before You,

Joyful, joyful, we adore You,

Joyful, we adore You

All Your works with joy surround You,

Earth and heaven reflect Your rays,

Stars and angels sing around You,

Center of unbroken praise;

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;

Drive the dark of doubt away;

Joyful, joyful, we adore You,

Joyful, we adore You

God 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.

Oh, God 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.

Oh, God 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.

Joyful, joyful, we adore You,

Hearts unfold like flowers before You,

Joyful, joyful, we adore You,

Hearts unfold like flowers before You,

Oh, God our Father, Christ our Brother,

All who live in love are thine;

Teach us how to love each other
