Fair are the meadows
Fairer still the woodlands
Robed in the blooming garb of spring
Oh my Jesus is fairer
Jesus is purer
Who makes the woeful heart to sing

You are fairer than the fairest of ten thousand
Lovelier than all I've ever seen
You are brighter than the brightest star in Heaven
Jesus You're everything to me
Jesus You're everything to me

Fair is the sunshine
Fairer still the moonlight
And oh the twinkling starry host
Jesus shines brighter
Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels Heaven can boast

Beautiful Savior Lord of all nations
Son of God and Son of Man
Glory and honor praise adoration
Now and forevermore be Thine

Your Name by Paul Baloche - Song Devotional

One of the most awesome and powerful responsibilities of parents is the naming of their children. What a privilege! A child’s personality, gifts, talents, achievements, relationships and more will come to be bound up with his or her name. In fact, names become a sort of “shorthand” for all the things that make us who we are. So, who gets to name God?

Peace On Earth

And here’s where the good news gets even better: the one who God favors are the unlikeliest of all. God shows His favor to the lowly, to the outcast, to the marginalized, to the hungry, to the sick.

Leading for the Love of Jesus
