Fairest Lord Jesus

This is one of my favourite hymns. It really lifted my soul this morning as I listened to it. The first time that I sang this hymn was at Grace Baptist Church of Essex, and every time I hear it, I am reminded of those blessed people. What a way to wake up in the morning, thinking on the fairest Lord Jesus.

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.

    Wow! Then you may be interested to know the Holy Word Church English Choir will be presenting this song (in 4 part harmony) in a couple weeks in our Worship Service.

    Cool! Well, now when I hear it I can also think on the beloved people of HWC too!

    One of my favs too – sometimes wish I’d been a German pietist…

    Hey, you’re Scottish and Presbyterian – you sing hymns?

    I’m half Irish, and, three or four years of study for the Presbyterian ministry has left me with serious doubts about the idea of Presbyterianism. Yes, I sing hymns!

    My personal Favorite is the old American classic “Jesus Freak” by D.C. Talk
