Jesu Joy Of Mans Desiring - Lyrics by Josh Groban


Jesu, joy of man's 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 

Notes: Originally by Johann Sabastian Bach 
The original song continues with these words: 
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 beauty's fairest pleasure 
Theirs is wisdom's holiest treasure 
Thou dost ever lead Thine own 
In the love of joys unknown
