"Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring" as written by Eugene O'hagan, David Delargy, Martin O'hagan, Mike Hedges, Sara Herbert, Salli Isaak and Js Bach....
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 fashioned
With the fire of life impassioned

Striving still to truth unknown
Soaring, dying 'round thy throne

    General CommentI think its originally from the genius, Johann Sebastian Bach. Nothing less than praising the greatness of GOD.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Christmas songs.

    Well, actually, it's not really a christmas song, is it. But it's sort of a christmas song, since it's usually played around Christmas. And that's good enoguh for me...

    Ooh, I love Bach.
