This is the original of the famous tune, Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring. This movement appears twice in the cantata, once at the end of the first section, and once at the end of the second (there are only 2 sections).
The only difference between the two is the text; the text in this file is from the latter. An english translation is available by clicking on the About link.
