Susan of DT Ode to Joy - other lyrics (9) Ode to Joy - other lyrics 22 Mar 17

When I was in elementary school (Brooklyn, 1950s) we sang a set of words to Ode to Joy that do not seem to be anywhere on Google. I remember the first two lines:

Ode to joy from Heaven descending
Hail joy all you here below...

Does anyone know the rest or where it came from? Yes, I know there are several sets of words sung to Ode to Joy, notably Jabowocky and parodies thereof.
