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 heav’n 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.
Br. do you see CHRIST as the ultimate of all things, your job, money, possessions, family name them. these things mean nothing when you know CHRIST

There is no person in this universe nor gods nor wealth nor all the gold and silver more worthy and more precious than the Lord Jesus Christ. He is exclusively Savior, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He deserves all my devotion, praise, adoration, faithfulness, obedience, and love!
My Pastor would always sing this Hymn.
Now after thirty-five years of being a Pastor this song resonates with me more than ever! All Praise be to Jesus!!

This morning I was awake early and this hymn was on my tongue. I looked it up on YouTube & sent it to my sister who is a pilot. She was in a city where she had a friend who came to pick her up to go to church with her. When she got to church, they sang this hymn! 😍God has a way of letting us know that He is everywhere all the time!

Repast for the soul. Surprised at the anonymous author.

This used to be my late father's favorite hymn. He used to tell us to be spiritually prepared before singing this song because it gets Lucifer infuriated. I still recall one day he was playing guitar and singing this song, all of a sudden, bulbs in the house started exploding and my dad told us that Lucifer is not happy that we are are referring to Jesus Christ as the fairest. I was barely 7yrs then ( 40yrs ago). To be candid, that experience / incident made me to be afraid of this hymn then. Thank God that all my fears are now gone and I not only draw inspirations from this marvelous hymn but have also adopted it as my favorite. Thank God for giving mankind the best gift, Jesus Christ.
