Joy and Singing

15 Oct

One of my Blogger pals has given me permission to share this post of hers which I love. If you go along to her blog, can hear her singing and that is a delight. I recommend you do just that. As she says, “I have lost the source for this song. The words are uplifting no matter what one believes.”

Joyful joyful we are joyful
We have truth in nature found
Hearts unfold like flowers before us
Opening to the sun above
Melting clouds of ill and sadness
Driving the dark of doubt away
Knowledge is our source of gladness
Fills us with the light of day

All natures’ works with joy surround us
Earth and heaven’s distant rays
Stars and planets arch above us
The sun the center of our days
Field and forest vale and mountain
Flowery meadow flashing seas
Singing bird and flowing fountain
Call us to rejoice in peace

May we be giving and forgiving
Ever honest with respect
Wellspring of the joy of living
Ocean depth of happy rest
Father brother sister mother
Live in love and peace in time
Teach us how to love each other
Lift us to our joy’s desire

Friends we join the happy chorus
Which the morning stars began
Natures love is shining on us
Brother love binds man to man
Ever singing march we onward
Victors in the midst of strife
Joyful music leads us sun-ward
In the triumph song of life

I’ve been out tonight singing with my choir, raising money for our two charities and it was great fun. I meant to ask friends in the audience to take a photo but forgot but Ladysighs has stepped into the breach. Thank you!

One of my singing friends has sent me a photo of us all as were were warming up before the concert last night. Thanks L for D’s photo!
