Jesus, thou Joy of Loving Hearts

SATB setting of St. Bernard of Clairvaux's prayer "Jesus, thou Joy of Loving Hearts."



Jesus, thou Joy of loving hearts,

thou Fount of life, our Light,

from the best bliss that earth imparts, 

we turn unfilled to thee again.


We taste thee, O living Bread,

and we long to see your face;

we drink thee, Fountain of life

and our thirst makes us free.


O Jesus, ever with us stay;

make all our moments calm and bright!

chase the dark night of sin away,

shed o’er the world thy holy light.

Jesus, thou Joy of Loving Hearts
