  • Description: "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" is the English title of the 10th movement of the cantata Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben, BWV 147 composed by Johann Sebastian Bach.

    I love Bach, probably one of my favorite classical composers, this is just my slide with some pretty imagery of Space, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Jesus, since the song's about Jesus and all his glory.

    Here are the lyrics, English and German (hopefullly there correct)

    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 fashion'd,

    With the fire of life impassion'd,

    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 beauty's fairest pleasure;

    Theirs is wisdom's holiest treasure.

    Thou dost ever lead Thine own

    In the love of joys unknown.

    Jesus bleibet meine Freude,

    meines Herzens Trost und Saft,

    Jesus wehret allem Leide,

    er ist meines Lebens Kraft,

    meiner Augen Lust und Sonne,

    meiner Seele Schatz und Wonne;

    darum lass' ich Jesum nicht

    aus dem Herzen und Gesicht.

    —from BWV 147, Chorale movement no. 10
    Wohl mir, dass ich Jesum habe,

    o wie feste halt' ich ihn,

    dass er mir mein Herze labe,

    wenn ich krank und traurig bin.

    Jesum hab' ich, der mich liebet

    und sich mir zu eigen giebet,

    ach drum lass' ich Jesum nicht,

    wenn mir gleich mein Herze bricht.

    —from BWV 147, Chorale movement no.6

    The translation of these original verses does not correspond closely to the most common English version, with the direct translation of the first line "Jesus shall remain my gladness" being replaced by "Jesu, joy of man's desiring."
