Sarah Brightman - Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring

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 for truth unknown
Soaring, dying, 'round Thy throne

Music & lyrics: traditional; arr. Carsten Heusmann / Frank Peterson

From: A Winter Symphony (2008).
