Highland's Daily Hymnspiration: "Fairest Lord Jesus"

Tags: hymnspirations music

Also entitled Beautiful Savior, this 1677 hymn is sung to an engaging Silesian folk melody. The following verse speaks out clearly of God’s power to rejuvenate us: "Fair are the meadows, Fair are the woodlands, Robed in flowers of blooming spring; Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer; He makes our sorrowing spirit sing." This was recorded by Penny Martin Heidt on organ and Emily McDonald on piano!
