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!
