This inspired adaptation of Bachâ€™s Jesu, Joy of Manâ€™s Desiring, pairs his immortal chorus with the beloved 18th century hymn text, Lord, Dismiss Us with Your Blessing, creating the perfect worship benediction! An alternate text for Advent/Christmas and an optional congregational refrain are also included. Perform the anthem in its entirety, or if a shorter benediction is preferred, perform only the final two phrases.
