Fairest Lord Jesus: Song and Devotional

09 May

Fairest Lord Jesus

            Most people would say that there is no greater love than the love of a mother. While the love of a mother is great, there is a far greater love. The love of God is incomparable to any other love. He loved us enough to give His only begotten Son as a sacrifice for our sins. While the love of a mother is indeed great, the love of God is incomprehensible. It is without fault or fail.

            The more we know of the love of God, the more we love Him. The more we love God, the more our heart is inclined to worship Him. Some today say that they can’t worship unless they have a particular style of music. I personally love many types of music. However, people who make these statements are clueless as to what worship truly is. Worship has nothing to do with a style of music, nor does it have anything to do with music. Worship is about God and God alone.

Worship is a recognition and then a response to who God is. Fairest Lord Jesus is far from a contemporary song. Some might even consider it liturgical. Though I love the melody, the words of this song are clearly words of worship. They are words that recognize and respond to the majestic person of God. They are words that demonstrate a clear understanding of God and express it with love and honor.

Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all
Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all
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

            Mothers are undoubtedly worthy of love and respect. And they absolutely deserve a special day of recognition. They even deserve more. However, God and God alone is worthy of worship. On this special day of the recognition of mothers, give them the respect that is due, but don’t forget to worship God. I believe even in your worship of God, you will honor your mother.
