It's a beautiful spring day here and I was marveling at the sunshine and the birdsong when this hymn came to mind.  Thought I would share it with you.

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 heav'n can boast.

Beautiful Savior, Lord of all nations, 
Son of god and Son of man!
Glory and honor,
Praise, adoration, Now and forevermore be thine!

this is one of my families favorite hymns. I think it is beautiful in music and in thought. I knew the second I saw the word 'fairest' - I started singing it before I could read your post. Thanks for sharing.
'singing with one another, in Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs...'

I appreciate so much the chorus of those faithful to Christ around me that have influenced me & shown me those same resources, making opportunity to choose a better path. Thanks for your efforts at homeschool channel, among many ways I'm sure, & in general to raise up godly children for the next generation.
