Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring | Classical & Fingerstyle Guitar

5:59 PM Paul Horn 0 Comments

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring is one of my favorite pieces. I thought I would give this a go with open triads. Some of the words are: "Jesus is the 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, around Thy throne."
