US 383 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 honour,

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.
