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 lift impassioned,
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.
