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 hosts;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels heaven can boast
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.
Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man! Glory, Honor, Praise, Adoration,
Now and forever more be Thine.
