Something to help us look to Jesus as we prepare our hearts for Sunday -

Fair is the sunrise;
Fair is the sunset
Breaking in fire upon the sea.
Jesus is fairer - Jesus, Thou Fire of love;
All praise to Thee, Lord, praise to Thee.

Fair is the blue light
Brooding on the ocean,
Fair the bright wonder of the sea.
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is brighter;
All praise to Thee, Lord, praise to Thee.

Fair is the racing wave;
Fair is the flying foam,
And the pure glory of the sea.
Jesus is fairer, His glory purer;
All praise to Thee, Lord, praise to Thee.

Fair is the ocean
Dreaming in the moonlight,
Peaceful, the quiet, shining sea.
Jesus is fairer, Jesus more peaceful;
All praise to Thee, Lord, praise to Thee.

So, we Thy children
Offer Thee our praises,
Join with the music of the sea,
Own Thee the fairest, own Thee the dearest,
Sing and give glory, Lord, to Thee.

-Amy Carmichael
