Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring Lyrics

Create your free personalized wedding website!

Jesu, joy of manís desiring,
Holy wisdom, love most bright;
Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring
Soar to uncreated light.
Word of God, our flesh that fashioned,
With the fire of life impassioned,
Striving still to truth unknown,
Soaring, dying round Thy throne.

Through the way where hope is guiding,
Hark, what peaceful music rings;
Where the flock, in Thee confiding,
Drink of joy from deathless springs.
Theirs is beautyís fairest pleasure;
Theirs is wisdomís holiest treasure.
Thou dost ever lead Thine own
In the love of joys unknown.

The beauty of this song is the beauty of Jesus Christ. Johann S. Bach who composed the piece wrote all his music to glorify God and believed that was the ultimate purpose of music. Gesu is woven from beginning to end with the beauty, love, wisdom and eternality of Christ.
