Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

1 Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole;
I want You forever to live in my soul.
Break down every idol; cast out every foe -
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

Whiter than snow, yes, whiter than snow;
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

2 Lord Jesus, look down from Your 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. [Refrain]

3 Lord Jesus, for this I most humbly entreat;
I wait, blessed Lord, at Your crucified feet.
By faith, for my cleansing I see Your blood flow -
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. [Refrain]

4 Lord Jesus, before You I patiently wait;
Come now, and within me a new heart create.
To those who have sought You, You never said "No" -
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. [Refrain]
