Fairest Lord Jesus

Fairest Lord Jesus Lyrics

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

Fair are the meadows, fair are the woodlands,
robed in flowers of blooming spring:
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer
He makes my sorrowing spirit sing

Fair is the sunshine, fair is the moonlight,
Bright the sparkling stars on high;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
than all the angels in the sky.

Beautiful Saviour! Lord of all nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honour, praise, adoration,
now and forevermore be thine.
