Rebecca St. James – Jesu' Joy Of Man's Desiring lyrics

By J.S. Bach
English Text by Bernard Gasso
Arrangement by Byron Hagan, Tedd T. & Rebecca St. James

Jesu' joy of man's desiring
Thou whose love shines down like a guiding light
Drawn to thee with souls aspiring
Through our faith we reach celestial height

Son of God we pray we may reach thee
May we live in peace we beseech thee

Open doors of truth unknown
As thy love comes down from the heavenly throne
Teach us from they heavenly throne

Open doors of truth unknown
As they love comes down from the heavenly throne
