Beautiful Savior


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!
