Ode To Joy

Rating: 2.7

Joy, thou beauteous godly lightning,
Daughter of Elysium,
Fire drunken we are ent’ring
Heavenly, thy holy home!
Thy enchantments bind together,
What did custom stern divide,
Every man becomes a brother,
Where thy gentle wings abide.

Chorus.

Be embrac’d, ye millions yonder!

'' Joy, thou beauteous godly lightning, Daughter of Elysium, Fire drunken we are ent’ring Heavenly, thy holy home! '' musicality is lost... WHAT A DIFFERENCE from a poetical point of view with: '' Freude schoner Gotterfunken, Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmliche dein Heiligtum! ''
