Fairest Lord Jesus

Fairest Lord Jesus,
Lord of all creation,
Son of God and Mary’s son;
you will I cherish,
you will I honour,
you are my soul’s delight and crown.

2. Fair are the rivers,
meadows and forests,
clothed in the fresh green robes of spring;
Jesus is fairer,
Jesus is purer,
he makes the saddest heart to sing.

3. Fair is the sunrise,
starlight and moonlight,
spreading their glory across the sky;
Jesus shines brighter,
Jesus shines clearer
than all the heavenly host on high.

4. All fairest beauty,
heavenly and earthly,
Jesus, my Lord, in you I see;
none can be nearer,
fairer or dearer,
than you, my Saviour, are to me.
