Werther is an opera composed by Jules Massenet, based on the homonymous novel by Goethe, which was premiered in Vienna in 1892.
In the second act, Sophie (sister of the protagonist Charlotte) sings the following aria, with which she tries to spread her joy to the melancholic Werther.

Du gai soleil, pleine de flamme,
Dans l’ azur resplendissant,
La pure clarté descend
de nos fronts jusqu’ à notre âme.
Tout le monde est joyeux;
le bonheur est dans l’air!
Et l’ oiseau qui monte aux cieux
Dans la brise qui soupire,
est revenu pour nous dire
que Dieu permet d’être heureux!
Tout le monde est joyeux;
le bonheur est dans l’air!
Tout le monde est heureux!

From the sun, full of flames,
Into the resplendant azure sky,
Pure light descends
On our heads, thence into our soul.
everyone is joyous;
happiness is in the air!
And the bird which climbs into the heavens
On the breeze which sighs,
Has come back to tell us
That God permits us to be happy!
everyone is joyous;
happiness is in the air!
Everyone is happy!
