Fairest Lord Jesus


Author, German, 17th Century
Taken from the book Hymns Of Praise

1. Fairest Lord Jesus!
Ruler of all nature!
O thou of God and man the Son!
Thee will I cherish,
Thee will I honor,
Thee my soul’s glory, joy, and crown!


2. 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!


3. Fairer is the sunshine,
Fairer still the moonlight,
And all the twinkling starry host;
Jesus shines brighter,
Jesus shines purer,
Than all the angels heav’n can boast!


4. All fairest beauty
Heavenly and earthly,
Wondrously, Jesus, is found in thee;
None can be nearer,
Fairer, or dearer,
Than thou my Savior art to me.
