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.

Thank you for the text. I sang this song at night as a child and it gave me such comfort. As a 74 yr old, I had most of the words but they were not coming out in the written order. So, as I still sing it, it still brings me comfort. Praise God!

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!

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!
