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.
