about

All Thy works with joy surround Thee.

lyrics

Joyful, Joyful
By John Grooters & Dwight Beal (adapted from Ludwig van Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Lyrics by Henry van Dyke, musical interlude from Michael W. Smith’s Sonata in D Major and Little Town.

Joyful, joyful we adore thee God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before thee opening to the sun above

Chorus
Gloria, sing in adoration

All thy works with joy surround thee earth and heaven reflect thy rays
Stars and angels sing around thee center of unbroken praise

Chorus
Gloria, sing in adoration
Gloria, sing in exultation of God!

Thou art giving and forgiving ever blessing ever blessed
Wellspring of the joy and living, ocean depth of happy rest
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!
