46. Fairest Lord Jesus

1 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!

2 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.

3 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.

4 Beautiful Savior!
Lord of all nations!
Son of God and Son of man!
Glory and honor,
Praise, adoration,
Now and forevermore be Thine!

Amen.
