  Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring is the usual English title of Jesus, bleibet meine Freude - the final choral movement of Bach's Cantata No. 147. The piece was made popular in a piano transcription by Myra Hess. The actual chorale melody is not by Bach, but by Johann Schop. The wonderful triplet counter-melody is, of course, Bach's creation.
