Palm Sunday ~ Fairest Lord Jesus

Fairest Lord Jesus

Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nature,
O Thou of God and man the Son,
Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor,
Thou, my soul’s glory, joy and crown.

Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands,
Robed in the blooming garb of spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,
Who makes the woeful heart to sing.

Fair is the sunshine,
Fairer still the moonlight,
And all the twinkling starry host;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels heaven can boast.

All fairest beauty, heavenly and earthly,
Wondrously, Jesus, is found in Thee;
None can be nearer, fairer or dearer,
Than Thou, my Savior, art to me.

Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor, praise, adoration,
Now and forever more be Thine.

Have a wonderful Palm Sunday and beginning of Holy Week everyone…

Because of my very interesting day yesterday which I will share sometime soon I’m reposting my Palm Sunday Hymn from last year.  We have a new modem so my technical difficulities have been healed till the next time. Thank you to my sister Lana for posting such a beautiful explanation of why I haven’t been online.

All of my posts this coming Holy Week will be concentrated on the events of this week in history and all related to Jesus and the Cross and His Resurrection! This is a great challenge for me to incorporate Easter into all the weekly challenges I participate in.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. VERY interesting day?? (As in the Chinese curse ‘May you live during interesting times’?)

    Willow, yep pretty close to that…as in Paramedics, tea, emergency waiting room, home at 10:30 PM…

  2. From your comment to Willow above, I detect that your day yesterday may have been much more “interesting” than you would have liked. Hope all is well now, and I send you & Dear blessings on this beautiful Palm Sunday. I’m looking forward to your posts throughout this Holy Week.

  3. OH my, paramedics? On top of computer problems? I don’t think I would like an ‘interesting’ day.

    God bless you and enjoy the beginning of Holy Week. I too am looking forward to your posts this week.

  4. Oh, Ellen, I am prayerful that all is well with you and Dear and family.

    I love Fairest Lord Jesus! (Both Him and the hymn. ; – )) An excellent choice for Palm Sunday.

  5. You have a wonderful challenge for the week! It will be a treat to read all you have to share! Sounds like you have had a time….and now you are back! Happy Palm Sunday to you!

  6. that is one of my favorite hymns… thanks so much for sharing it with us♥

    and i hope you are well, in spite of your “interesting day”

  7. Interesting! Your second, third and last verses are very similar to the hymn I know as Beautiful Savior. It is sung to the tune Schonster Herr Jesu. I had to look it up since I had recognized parts of it.
