Fairest Lord Jesus
by Munster Gesangbuch
C Am Dm G C C Am Dm G C
Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nature,
C F C G7 C G
O Thou of God and man the Son;
C F C A7 Dm C Dm G7 C
Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor
Am F C G7 C
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 fair the twinkling starry host;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer,
Then all the angels heav'n can boast.
All fairest beauty, heavenly and earthly,
Wondrously Jesus is found in Thee;
None can be nearer, fairer or dearer,
Than Thou my Savior art to me.
