    JOYFUL JOYFUL WE ADORE THEE (ODE TO JOY) Beethoven (Orchestra) is the triumphant finale to Beethoven's 9th. Perfect for wedding recessional, processional, or prelude song. It's difficult to find Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee as a stand-alone song fit for use in a wedding, as it is nestled in Beethoven's ambitious 9th Symphony. This arrangement begins ideally with the exultant Ode To Joy chorus part often sung by a massive choir; here it is an orchestra piece, with piano sometimes embellishing, sometimes doubling the melody.

Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee (Ode To Joy) Beethoven (Orchestra) lyrics, from Wikipedia:

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!

All Thy works with joy surround Thee, earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee, center of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale and mountain, flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in Thee.

Thou art giving and forgiving, ever blessing, ever blessed,
Wellspring of the joy of living, ocean depth of happy rest!
Thou our Father, Christ our Brother, all who live in love are Thine;
Teach us how to love each other, lift us to the joy divine.

Mortals, join the happy chorus, which the morning stars began;
Father love is reigning o’er us, brother love binds man to man.
Ever singing, march we onward, victors in the midst of strife,
Joyful music leads us Sunward in the triumph song of life.
