Fairest Lord Jesus ~ Hymn

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 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 and honor, praise, adoration,
Now and forever more be Thine.

  1. Good afternoon Ellen B.,
    How was the game? Did your team win? I’m so terrible…I never follow sports :).

    Do you remember the band “Second Chapter of Acts”? They were my first introduction to hymns and this is one they sang that I just loved. I can hear the melody playing in my head.

    I hope you have a blessed Sunday!

    xoxo Cori G.

  2. whenever i hear of this wonderful hymn i am reminded of corrie ten boom’s mother, and how she was able to sing this hymn even though she had lost her speech from a stroke. such a lovely lovely song…♥

  3. I love this hymn, Ellen! Especially these words in the first verse:

    Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor,
    Thou, my soul’s glory, joy and crown.

    That’s my aspiration…all the time!!!
