For Palm Sunday: Fairest Lord Jesus

Reflect on the new lyrics Erik Dewar and Ruth Newby wrote for verses two, three and four of Fairest Lord Jesus as you anticipate King Jesus' arrival on a donkey this Palm Sunday. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

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.

Humble in spirit,
Emptied as servant,
Thou, Living Bread, from heav'n came down;
Food for the hungry,
Truth for the simple,
To show Thy steadfast love abounds.

Great was Thine anguish,
Heavy was Thy burden,
All of our debt to Thy cross was nailed.
Bruised by the Father,
Mocked by the scoffers,
For sinners Thou hast torn the veil.

Sunrise so splendid,
Morning Star eternal,
Thy fullness shines in endless grace!
Bowing, adoring,
We see Thee now with unveiled face.

Beautiful Savior!
Lord of all nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor,
Praise, adoration,
Now and forevermore be Thine.
