  • Beautiful Savior (Fairest Lord Jesus)

    "Beautiful Savior (Fairest Lord Jesus) for string quartet, flute, and piano is based on a traditional folk song and is a favorite hymn of many. This arrangement is for string quartet (or ensemble) with a solo flute and piano accompaniment. Rich harmonies and smooth flowing lines make this a reverent, yet powerful statement of love for the Savior. It is a short setting of three verses, but the sections are easily repeated with, say, dynamic variation, if a longer rendition is desired. The flute part has the option of a higher or lower octave at parts, at the discretion of the conductor or player. A separate piano part is provided to eliminate page turns of the score, if desired. This is a free download that can be used for incidental home and church use.

    Beautiful Savior

    Music: Silesian Folk Song, arr. Cathy Neff

    (Instrumental: Lyrics given as reference only)

    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!

    Fairest Lord Jesus

    Music: Silesian Folk Song, arr. Cathy Neff

    (Instrumental: Lyrics given as reference only)

    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.
