Lyrics to Ode to Joy Ode to Joy

Seid umschlungen, Millionen!
You millions, I embrace you.
Diesen Kuß der ganzen Welt!
This kiss is for all the world!
Brüder, über'm Sternenzelt
Brothers, above the starry canopy
Muß ein lieber Vater wohnen.
There must dwell a loving father.
Ihr stürzt nieder, Millionen?
Do you fall in worship, you millions?
Ahnest du den Schöpfer, Welt?
World, do you know your creator?
Such' ihn über'm Sternenzelt!
Seek Him in the heavens;
Über Sternen muß er wohnen.
Above the stars must he dwell.


Music by Ludvig von Beethoven
Lyrics by Friedrich Schiller (1785)
