    FAIREST LORD JESUS seems to have first made its appearance in 1677, but it is hard to be certain of the origin of this wonderful Christian hymn. The melody of Fairest Lord Jesus may derive from a German folk song; & it may have been composed by Jesuits in Germany in the early 1600's. It seems it may have been sung by followers of John Hus, who was driven from Bohemia in 1620 at time of anti-reformation fervor. Yet another account has German Crusaders singing "Fairest Lord Jesus" as they made their pilgrimage to the Holy Land in the 12 century.

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.

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.

Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor, praise, adoration,
Now and forever more be Thine.
