Fairest Lord Jesus
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.
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.
Fair is the sunshine,
Fairer still the moonlight,
And all the twinkling starry host;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels Heav’n can boast.
All fairest beauty, heavenly and earthly,
Wondrously, Jesus, is found in Thee;
None can be nearer, fairer or dearer,
Than Thou, my Savior, art to me.
Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor, praise, adoration,
Now and forever more be Thine.

Moving all around me
Fresh, flowing and free
Tingling my skin
Waking my senses within-
From tree to tree
Among the sky and shimmering sea
in my ear
Of many mysteries and memories
Wind…lifts the scents of
Letting them drift
To us as a gift
For many delightful hours.
It can be found
Under seagull's wing,
Or passing through our hair,
At times it will rustle up leaves
Til' all the trees go bare .
So eager to greet everyone
Coming and going
As it may...
Some days it's wild
And at other times
Whimsical wind just wants to play.
It is known to all
Yet not controlled by any man
Nor completely understood…
Wind is just another precious part
Of God's glorious plan.
