    Beautiful Savior

    Crusader’s Hymn

    Simply, but expressively

    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 evermore!

    Evermore!

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

    Optional descant for voice or instrument (verse 3)
    Beautiful Savior!
    Lord of the nations!
    Son of God and Son of Man!
    Thee I honor, praise, and give glory,
    Give glory evermore!
    Evermore!
