Ode To Joy (for Beethoven’s music)

Hear the simple truth we’re singing,

Hear it and be glad to stand.

Now step forward free in spirit,

Join with lovers o’er the land!

Louder, prouder, truer and surer,

Strong to endure o’er tyranny,

Man and woman wholly human,

Love of life will ever be!

Thousand voices joy in praising

Joy itself arising high,

Choir of life’s soul abiding

In the morn of every “I” !

Flash of sun and crash of lightning,

Ha, ha, ha! Their love is strong—

For this force of song uniting

In man’s mind that does belong!
