Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

Sung on this track by the PURPLE cantor.

TEXT
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.

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

Played on this track with optional flute and oboe.

This meditative piece works well for the seating of parents and for the bridal party procession. Either this instrumental version can be used or the sung version, as found in the Communion Song selections, can be used.
