Michael lining presents a one-man acapella cover of the Christian hymn, ‘Beautiful Savior (Fairest Lord Jesus).’
Joseph A. Seiss translated and compiled the hymn ‘Beautiful Savior (Fairest Lord Jesus),’ he was born and raised in a Moravian home with the original family name of Seuss.
Beautiful Savior, King of creation,
Son of God and Son of Man!
Truly I’d love Thee, truly I’d serve thee,
Light of my soul, my Joy, my Crown.
He studied at Pennsylvania College in Gettysburg and completing his theological education with tutors and through private study, Seiss became a Lutheran pastor in 1842.
Fair are the meadows, Fair are the woodlands,
Robed in flow’rs of blooming spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer;
He makes our sorr’wing spirit sing.
He was known as an eloquent and popular preacher, and the author and editor of some eighty volumes, including The Last Times (1856), The Evangelical Psalmist (1859), and contributed to and compiled several hymnals.
Today as we listen to Michael lining sing a glorious rendition of this hymn we feel edified and uplifted in our spirit.
