    I don't think it is specifically a Christmas song but can be played anytime there is a joyous occasion. Certainly Christmas is a joyous time.

    Its from Beethovan's 9th symphony in the 4th movement...somewhere near the middle. The words are from a poem by Shiller. There's actually a great modern synth version of it from Wendy Carlos on the soundtrack to the movie "A Clockwork Orange".

    Nope, not how bethoven wrote it. But thousands of songs incorperate it's tune so I wouldn't be surprised if their was a tune with christmass lyrics.

    TOTALLY TRANSLATED TO ENGLISH

    BARITONE

    Oh friends, not these tones!

    Let us raise our voices in more

    pleasing and more joyful sounds!

    ODE TO JOY (Friedrich Schiller)

    BARITONE, QUARTET, AND CHORUS

    Joy, beautiful spark of the gods,

    Daughter of Elysium,

    We enter fire imbibed,

    Heavenly, thy sanctuary.

    Thy magic reunites those

    Whom stern custom has parted;

    All men will become brothers

    Under thy gentle wing.

    May he who has had the fortune

    To gain a true friend

    And he who has won a noble wife

    Join in our jubilation!

    Yes, even if he calls but one soul

    His own in all the world.

    But he who has failed in this

    Must steal away alone and in tears.

    All the world's creatures

    Draw joy from nature's breast;

    Both the good and the evil

    Follow her rose-strewn path.

    She gave us kisses and wine

    And a friend loyal unto death;

    She gave lust for life to the lowliest,

    And the Cherub stands before God.

    TENOR SOLO AND CHORUS

    Joyously, as his suns speed

    Through Heaven's glorious order,

    Hasten, Brothers, on your way,

    Exulting as a knight in victory.

    CHORUS

    Joy, beautiful spark of the gods,

    Daughter of Elysium,

    We enter fire imbibed,

    Heavenly, thy sanctuary.

    Be embraced, Millions!

    This kiss for all the world!

    Brothers!, above the starry canopy

    A loving father must dwell.

    Can you sense the Creator, world?

    Seek him above the starry canopy.

    Above the stars He must dwell.

    Be embraced, Millions!

    This kiss for all the world!

    Brothers!, above the starry canopy

    A loving father must dwell.

    Can you sense the Creator, world?

    Seek him above the starry canopy.

    Above the stars He must dwell.

    Joy, beautiful spark of the gods,

    Daughter of Elysium,

    We enter fire imbibed,

    Heavenly, thy sanctuary.

    Be embraced, Millions!

    This kiss for all the world!

    Brothers!, above the starry canopy

    A loving father must dwell.

    Can you sense the Creator, world?

    Seek him above the starry canopy.

    Above the stars He must dwell.

    Be embraced, Millions!

    This kiss for all the world!

    Brothers!, above the starry canopy

    A loving father must dwell.

    Can you sense the Creator, world?

    Seek him above the starry canopy.

    Above the stars He must dwell.

    Joy, daughter of Elysium

    Thy magic reunites those

    Whom stern custom has parted;

    All men will become brothers

    Under thy gentle wing.

    Be embraced, Millions!

    This kiss for all the world!

    Brothers!, above the starry canopy

    A loving father must dwell.

    Joy, beautiful spark of Gods!,

    Daughter of Elysium,

    Joy, beatiful spark of Gods!.
