I’m surprised no one has asked for this hymn yet–one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written–Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, by Johann Sebastian Bach. Sung here by Celtic Woman. Most often heard around Christmas-time, this is good for every day of the year. Hard to imagine mortal, sinful human beings creating anything this beautiful: but then we are made in His image.
