1. Fair is the sunshine,

Fairer the moonlight

And all the stars in heav’n above;

Jesus shines brighter,

Jesus shines purer

And brings to all the world his love.

2. Fair are the meadows,

Fairer the woodlands,

Robed in the flowers of blooming spring;

Jesus is fairer,

Jesus is purer.

He makes the sorrowing spirit sing.

3. Beautiful Savior! Lord of the nations!

Son of God and Son of Man!

Thee will I honor, praise, and give glory,

Give praise and glory ever more! Evermore!

Optional descant for voice or instrument

Beautiful Savior! Lord of the nations!

Son of God and Son of Man!

Thee I honor, praise, and give glory,

Give glory evermore! Evermore!

Sing verse 1 in unison. Verse 2 may be sung as a duet.
