Sunday Serenity :: The Spring Mantel

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.

Fair are the meadows, 
Fair are the woodlands,

Robed in the flowers of blooming Spring;

Jesus is fairer, 
Jesus is purer,

He makes our sorrowing spirit sing.

I found myself singing this song while taking pictures of the narcissus.
I remember singing this hymn as a girl at Our Savior Lutheran Church.
 Does anyone else remember this hymn?

  2. The mantel is beautiful! The hymn sounds familiar but a tune is just not coming to me. The lyrics are lovely though. Hope you have a blessed Sunday! <3 Paula

  3. Beautiful pictures, Leslie. Isn't it amazing how the hymns take a hold of our hearts? When we hear them it's like going back home. Although I remember many growing up, this one doesn't come to mind. I played it and it's very peaceful.

    Enjoy your Sunday.

  4. Awwwww, Leslie. The narcissis are soooo lovely and regal. They look absolutely splendid. Simple and elegant. Great job. Have a blessed Sunday.

  5. Oh how beautiful...both the song & the pictures. I don't remember the song, but I love imagining you sing it. (((Hugs))) to you my friend!

  6. Love the sweet simplicity and clean lines of your mantle, it is so FRESH!!!! Kathysue

  9. Love the simplicity of your spring mantle! lovely~!

  10. Sure I remember this hymn and the way my heart still rejoices when I sing it even though I can't carry a tune in a bucket:)

  11. Well, Leslie my friend, you really nailed me today. You used one of my all time favorite flowers *AND BEAUTIFULLY I might add* and also one of my all time favorite hymns.

    Love this. It was a simple pleasure to share. Really.

  12. Oh my, yes! Could sing this by heart. Though I love the modern praise and worship music of today, when by myself I often revert to the beautiful "older" songs. Thanks for that and the beautiful photos.

  13. One of my favorite hymns! I wish we sang the old hymns more often. love your mantel too.

  14. "Fairest Lord Jesus" and one of my alltime favorite hymns as well!!!! Our church does sing some of the old hymns...from the hymnbook YAAY!!
    Your post is absolutely beautiful and I thank you!

  15. The mantle is wonderful. I love the different sized vases with the same contents. Love it.

    It's funny...I wasn't raised in church and never heard hymns until I was an adult. So I don't have that same affection for them that most of my friends (and twins) have. It's so sweet. I hope my kids love them they way you do. Lisa~

  16. love all the different vases. simply stunning!


Thank you for coming by and for sharing your heart and thoughts with me!
