Munster Gesangbuch, Richard Willis

Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nature

O Thou of God and Man, the Son

Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honour

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 hearts to sing


Beautiful Saviour, Lord of all the nations

Son of God and Son of Man

Glory and honour, praise, adoration

Now and forever more be Thine


All fairest beauty, heavenly and earthly

Wondrously, Jesus, is found in Thee

None can be nearer, fairer or dearer

Than Thou, my Saviour, art to me
