Food for my soul… πŸ˜‡πŸ˜Œ

Fairest Lord Jesus

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 189
Text: Munster Gesangbuch; trans. by Joseph August Seiss
Music: Schlesische Volkslieder; arr. by Richard Storrs Willis
Tune: ST. ELIZABETH, Meter: 568.558
1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor, praise, adoration,
now and forevermore be thine.

Oh I'm just a woman that loves good food and loves more if I can cook it. There is nothing better than family + or - good friends. No need even for wine or strong drink when the food is good enough. Though not formally trained in food I'm quite experienced and now enjoy the traditional and some things a little different. I've raised 4 intelligent and emotional people and they are raising the same. I'm a hopeless romantic, eloquent, intellectual, spiritual (a Christian) who lives and breathes the call of God. I'm not shy but I don't necessarily talk much but am an avid people watcher. πŸ˜€. I hope you enjoy looking as much as I will posting! And you know what?...God is good...
