Fairest Lord Jesus

 

Fairest Lord Jesus

Ruler of all nature

O thou of God and man the Son!

Thee will I cherish,

Thee will I honor,

Thou, my soul’s glory, joy, and crown!

Fair are the meadows

Fairer still the woodlands,

Robed in the blooming garb of spring;

Jesus is fairer,

Jesus is purer,

Who makes the woeful heart to sing!

Fair is the sunshine,

Fairer still the moonlight,

And all the twinkling starry host;

Jesus shines brighter,

Jesus shines purer,

Than all the angels heaven can boast!

Beautiful Savior,

Lord of all nations,

Son of God and Son of man!

Glory and honor,

Praise, adoration,

Now and forevermore be Thine!
