Sunday Song — Fairest Lord Jesus (You Are Fairer)

This modernized version of the hymn “Fairest Lord Jesus” has an additional chorus by Nathan and Christy Nockels and is from the Passion album, “Hymns, Ancient & Modern.”

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.

You are fairer still, today;
You are fairer still, today.
Precious Jesus, Lord, you are adored,
As we worship, as we worship.
You are fairer still, today;
You are fairer still, today.
Precious Jesus, Lord, you are adored,
As we worship, as we worship.

Fair is the sunshine,
Fairer still the moonlight,
And all the twinkling starry host:
Jesus shines brighter,
Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels heav’n can boast.

You are fairer still, today;
You are fairer still, today.
Precious Jesus Lord, you are adored,
As we worship, as we worship.
You are fairer still, today;
You are fairer still, today.
Precious Jesus Lord, you are adored,
As we worship, as we worship.

Beautiful Savior!
Lord of all nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor,
Praise, adoration,
Now and forevermore be Thine!
