Today at church was the annual Sacrament Meeting Presentation when all the Primary children put on a program for the congregation. It's a very special day, because it is quite something to see all the little kids in all their cuteness trying so hard to do something good, and also because it brings back a lot of great memories of my time spent as primary president and preparing the SMP and spending time with those kids who now are quite grown up.

Today they sang one of my most favorite songs that I had nearly forgotten about. Here it is sung by the BYU men's choir on You Tube, and below are the lyrics:

Beautiful Savior
Words: Anon,. twelfth century
Music: Silesian folk song

Fair is the sunshine, fairer the moonlight
And all the stars in heaven above;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
And brings to all the world his love.

Fair are the meadows, fairer the woodlands,
Robed in the flowers of blooming spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer.
He makes the sorrowing spirit sing.

Beautiful Savior! Lord of the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Thee will I honor, praise, and give glory,
Give praise and glory evermore!
