Jesu, joyance of my heart

Johann Sebastian Bach

Jesu, joyance of my heart,
Blessed Jesu;
Bliss unto my soul thou art,
Holy Jesu;
Sure defence from Satan's dart,
Sweetest Jesu.

Thousand times I think of thee,
My Redeemer;
Only yearn thy face to see;
My Redeemer.
Longing for thy company,
My Redeemer.

Nought is lovelier than thou,
Dearest Jesu;
None is friendlier than thou;
Gentlest Jesu;
Nor is any sweet as thou,
Sweetest Jesu.
