Beautiful Savior

 

Lyrics

  1. 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. 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. 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 evermore!

    Evermore!
