Tune: CRUSADERS' HYMN (111271)
Published in 3 hymnals
1 Fairest Lord Jesus, Lord of all creation,
Son of God who from heav'n came down;
thee will I cherish, thee will I honor,
O thou my soul’s delight and crown.
2 Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands,
robed in the colors and bloom of spring.
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer;
he makes the saddest heart to sing.
3 Fair is the moonlight, fairer still the sunshine,
fair is the shimm'ring starry sky;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines clearer
than all the heav'nly host on high.
4 All fairest beauty, heavenly and earthly,
wondrously, Jesus, is found in thee;
none can be nearer, fairer, or deare
than thou, my Saviour, art to me.
