‘Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring’

One of the most beautiful hymns ever written, Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring, by J.S. Bach: performed here by the Edinburgh Singers, complete with oboe solo. I discovered this around Christmastime, but it’s the hymn that called to me today.

  1. Beautiful! An inspiring old hymn that we do not get to hear often. I also love the rendition done by Josh Groban.

  2. I just remembered another marvelous song titled He Looked Beyond My Faults and Saw My Need. John Starnes has a beautiful version.
