Lirik Ode to Joy (Beethoven's 9th Symphony)

Banyak yg bilang instrumen ini musik gereja, atau untuk suatu agama, Tapi gua memandangnya lain, kenapa ? karena musik universal. Sedikit bahas tentang simfoni ini. Pertama coba di Play dulu atau dengerin dulu sebelum baca lebh lanjut.

Instrumen ini punya nama asli : "Ode An Die Freude"

Tergolong musik klasik, yg katanya punya manfaat bagus buat jaringan otak bayi maupun manusia. Nah, kalo si Beethoven nya sendiri sih cuma bikin instrumen nya aja, kalo untuk apanya dia nyiptain, ya karena dia seneng aja buatnya haha. Walaupun dia sendiri pendengarannya kurang bagus.

Liriknya pun banyak versi dan ini salah satu versinya menurut :

O friends, no more these sounds!
Let us sing more cheerful songs,
more full of joy!
Joy, bright spark of divinity,
Daughter of Elysium,
Fire-inspired we tread
Thy sanctuary.
Thy magic power re-unites
All that custom has divided,
All men become brothers
Under the sway of thy gentle wings.
Whoever has created 
An abiding friendship,
Or has won
A true and loving wife,
All who can call at least one soul theirs,
Join in our song of praise;
But any who cannot must creep tearfully
Away from our circle.
All creatures drink of joy
At nature's breast.
Just and unjust
Alike taste of her gift;
She gave us kisses and the fruit of the vine,
A tried friend to the end.
Even the worm can feel contentment,
And the cherub stands before God!
Gladly, like the heavenly bodies
Which He set on their courses
Through the splendor of the firmament;
Thus, brothers, you should run your race,
As a hero going to conquest.
You millions, I embrace you.
This kiss is for all the world!
Brothers, above the starry canopy
There must dwell a loving Father.
Do you fall in worship, you millions?
World, do you know your creator?
Seek him in the heavens;
Above the stars must He dwell.
