Fairest Lord Jesus

This month we've been singing this version of Fairest Lord Jesus by Amy Grant.

The original song was written in German by Schönster Herr Jesu, published in 1677.  Joseph A. Seiss translated into English and the original words are below. 

Beautiful Savior, king of creation
Son of God and Son of Man!
Truly I’d love Thee, truly I’d serve Thee,
Light of my soul, my joy, my crown.

Fair are the meadows, fair are the woodlands,
Robed in the flowers of blooming spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,
He makes our sorrowing spirit sing.

Fair is the sunshine, fair is the moonlight,
Bright the sparkling stars on high;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels in the sky.

Beautiful Savior, Lord of the nations,
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor, praise, adoration

Now and forevermore be Thine!
