Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee
Author: Henry van Dyke
sung to the tune of: "Ode to Joy"
 by: Ludwig van Beethoven

I hope you enjoy!

    D       A
    Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,
    D      A
    God of glory, Lord of love;
    D        A
    Hearts unfold like flow’rs before Thee,
    D       A      G   D
    Op’ning to the sun above.


    A        D         A       D
    Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
    A     D           G     A
    Drive the dark of doubt away;
    D     A
    Giver of immortal gladness,
    D       G        A        D
    Fill us with the light of day!


    D       A      
    All Thy works with joy surround Thee,
    D           A           
    Earth and heav’n reflect Thy rays,
    D         A
    Stars and angels sing around Thee,
    D      A    G      D
    Center of unbroken praise.

    A         D       A        D
    Field and forest, vale and mountain,
    A       D       G        A
    Flow’ry meadow, flashing sea,
    D       A
    Singing bird and flowing fountain
    D       A    G     D
    Call us to rejoice in Thee. 


    C        G
    Thou art giving and forgiving,
    C        G
    Ever blessing, ever blest,
    C          G
    Wellspring of the joy of living,
    C      G        F    C
    Ocean depth of happy rest!

    G        C       G          C
    Thou our Father, Christ our Brother,
    G       C       F        G
    All who live in love are Thine;
    C        G
    Teach us how to love each other,
    C       G      F   C
    Lift us to the joy divine.

    C        G
    Mortals, join the happy chorus,
    C         G
    Which the morning stars began;
    C      G
    Father love is reigning o’er us,
    C       G    F         C
    Brother love binds man to man.

    G    C        G        C
    Ever singing, march we onward,
    G       C      F        G
    Victors in the midst of strife,
    C      G
    Joyful music leads us Sunward
    C      G       F    C
    In the triumph song of life.

Nice! But Beethoven would never use a A-G chord progression like this. It should be G first then A. Same goes for G and F. F should come first!

That doesn't mean it's wrong, but Beethoven wouldn't do it.

Lack of accuracy. The chord progression is lacking and like the commenter said...Beethoven would never have done it that way! Sorry, but this tab is a no-go :(
