Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee

LEAD Story 337

Performed by students from De La Salle Schools worldwide

The year 2020 is a turbulent one. Across the continents, the coronavirus ravages the world and many are either under strict lockdown protocols or following social distancing measures. However, we at the Brothers of Christians Schools have not given up. As Lasallians, we are thankful towards the selfless sacrifice of medical personnel around the world. Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee was written by Henry Van Dyke, set to Ludwig van Beethoven's symphony number 9 and was widely regarded as one of the most joyous hymns ever written. We hope that in times of despair, everyone around the world can remain joyful. (Text: Mr. Sherwood Wong, La Salle College Mass Choir)
