One way to do it:
,----~/.Xdefaults
| 
| !Emacs
| Emacs*font:   -xos4-terminus-medium-*-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1
| Emacs*cursorColor:    magenta
| Emacs*foreground:     White
| Emacs*background:     Black
| Emacs*borderwidth:    0
| Emacs*bitmapIcon:     on
| ! Lucid resources:
| Emacs.pane.menubar.font:      
-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1
| Emacs*menu*fontSet:           
-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1
| Emacs.dialog*.font:           
-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1
| Emacs.dialog*.foreground:     Black
| Emacs.dialog*.background:     Gray
| Emacs.pane.menubar.foreground:  Black
| Emacs.pane.menubar.background:  Gray
`----

$ xrdb ~/.Xdefaults

and open Emacs anew.

Use xfontsel to find the name of the font that you want (where I have
terminus above).

Another way is to customize the default face and put in the name of the
font under "Family."
