Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring by Bach (With Lyrics)



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6OgZCCoXWc
Bach signed most of his work with. To the Greater Glory of God 

"I remember reading for the first time in my freshman year a simple statement by this master musician. Bach said, "Music's only purpose should be the glory of God and the recreation of the human spirit." The more I pondered this sentence, the more it liberated my heart. Music was given to glorify God in heaven and to edify men and women on earth. It wasn't to make lots of money, or to meet my ego needs, or to see my name in lights. Music was about blessing the Lord and blessing others. After months of auditions, rehearsals, recitals, and competitions, the simplicity of Bach's statement was a balm for my soul."
