Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

49a. Bela Jesuo, estro de la estroj

1. Bela Jesuo, estro de la estroj,
Dia Filo sen kompar'!
Vin mi honoras, Vin mi adoras,
Vin, gvidant' tra l' vivo-mar'.

2. Belas la montoj, belas la arbaroj,
Mondo estas bel' sen fin'.
Sed, Jesu mia, jen belo Via
Multe pli ĝojigas min.

3. Belas la suno, belas ankaŭ luno,
Steloj sub la firmament'.
Pli bela brilo de l' Dia Filo
Ravas nin al ama sent'.

4. Belas la floroj, belas pli la homoj,
Dum la freŝa, juna fort'.
Jen ni forpasos, belon postlasos,
Sed Jesu savas nin de l' mort'.

5. Teran belecon kaj ĉiel-helecon
Superbrilas Via bel'.
Mia Savanto, Dia Peranto,
Mia nura amo-cel'!
