08. Jesu' Joy Of Man's Desiring

by 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
