What else can you say, but thank you?
O Thou art God and man, the son
Thee, will I cherish, Thee, will I honor
Thou, my soul’s only joy and Christ
Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands
Mold in the blooming God of spring
Jesus, Jesus is fairer, Jesus is pure
Who makes the wrongful heart to, to see?
Fair is the sunshine, fairer still the moonlight
And all that weakling, starry pose
Oh Jesus, oh, my Jesus shines brighter
Oh, my Jesus shines purer than all the angels Heaven can bolt out
Beautiful Savior, Lord of the nations
Son of the God and Son of Man
Glory and honor, praise, adoration
Now and forevermore be thine
