Adoration is the act of paying reverent homage. The hymn, Fairest Lord Jesus (or Beautiful Savior) speaks to the way people young and old "pay reverent homage". Tom Fettke's thoughtful blending of the music of two master composers -- J. S. Bach and Charles Gounod -- with this meaningful text is inspired. Both choirs and people benefit from sharing this moving, timely piece.
