Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

2 posts in this topic

This is my re-write of the lyrics for Bach's "Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring".

Reason, joy of man's desiring,

Knowing wisdom, love most bright;

Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring,

Soars with man-created light.

Word of Mind, our flesh impassioned,

With the fire of thinking fashioned,

Striving still with truth new-shown,

Soaring, living, sound and known.

Through the way where Thought is guiding,

Hark, what peaceful music rings;

Where the man, in self confiding,

Drinks of joy from life-long springs.

His is beauty's fairest pleasure;

His is wisdom's loftiest treasure.

Thought dost ever lead Thought's own

In the love of joys high-flown.
