#310: Whiter Than Snow

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole;

I want Thee forever to live in my soul.

Break down ev’ry idol, cast out ev’ry foe,

Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

CHORUS

Whiter than snow, yes, whiter than snow —

Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

2

Lord Jesus, look down from Thy throne in the skies

And help me to make a complete sacrifice.

I give up myself and whatever I know –

Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

CHORUS

3

Lord Jesus, for this I most humbly entreat;

I wait, blessed Lord, at Thy crucified feet

By faith, for my cleansing I see Thy blood flow —

Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

CHORUS

4

Lord Jesus, Thou seest I patiently wait;

To those who have sought Thee Thou never saidst “no” —

Come now and within me a new heart create.

Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

CHORUS
