‘Fairest Lord Jesus’

You don’t mind if I post another Fountainview video, do you?

Fairest Lord Jesus, sung by a few of the students at Fountainview Academy–an old, old hymn still beloved today.

By Request, ‘Fairest Lord Jesus’

This is a good old Sunday school favorite. Our church’s hymnal said it went back to the Middle Ages.

Fairest Lord Jesus–requested by “Thewhiterabbit,” sung by kids from the Fountainview Academy.

‘Fairest Lord Jesus’

Overlooking scenic Seton Lake in British Columbia–four kids from Fountainview Academy, and Fairest Lord Jesus. A church and Sunday school favorite.

‘Beautiful Savior’

The Lutheran Warbler sings her way through the hymnal, and here we pause at one of my wife’s favorite hymns, Beautiful Savior. Also known as Fairest Lord Jesus and, sometimes, as “The Crusaders’ Hymn”.

This is an antidote to these times.

By Request, ‘Fairest Lord Jesus’

And we have a hymn request from Joshua–Fairest Lord Jesus, performed by Maranatha Celtic. Background sets by God the Father.

The beauty that we see everywhere in nature tells us always, if we but listen: “God is nigh. God is nigh.”

‘Fairest Lord Jesus’ (Fountainview)

The hymnal in our church, way back when, said this was a crusaders’ hymn from the Middle Ages; but nobody seems to know how old it really is.

‘Beautiful Savior’

This hymn is also well-known as Fairest Lord Jesus. A capella singing by the Oasis Chorale. Background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.

It doesn’t take this hymn very long to bring me close to tears. How about you?

Fairest Lord Jesus (or Beautiful Savior, depending on whose hymnal you’re using): requested by Susan, sung by the Oasis Chorale. Sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.

‘Fairest Lord Jesus’

It’s raining gently here today, on and off, and this is the hymn that came to mind today–Fairest Lord Jesus/Beautiful Savior. I grew up thinking it was a crusaders’ hymn, because that’s what it said in our church’s hymnal; but in fact it was published in 1873.

This version is by the Oasis Chorale.

‘Fairest Lord Jesus’ (Children’s Choir)

This is the children’s choir at Truro Cathedral, in Cornwall; and this is hope. Our hope is in the Lord. Fairest Lord Jesus is an ancient hymn, but, as you can see, still full of life.

If you’re new to this blog, we like to start every day with a hymn or worship song, and we take requests. So if you have a favorite hymn you’d like to see posted here, just let me know.
