Hymn To Joy

Rating: 2.8
Joy, thou goddess, fair, immortal,
Offspring of Elysium,
Mad with rapture, to the portal
Of thy holy fame we come!
Fashion's laws, indeed, may sever,
But thy magic joins again;
All mankind are brethren ever
'Neath thy mild and gentle reign.

CHORUS.
Welcome, all ye myriad creatures!

I agree with Oscar Rodriguez. This poem is so powerful in the German language that one's heart swells, but loses much of its impact in English.
