30. New Whiter than Snow

1 Dear Saviour, how often my heart has been sad,
How often it murmurs, when it should be glad;
Come, reign in this bosom, cast out ev’ry foe,
And wash me that I may be whiter than snow.

Chorus:
Whiter than snow, yes, whiter than snow,
O wash me that I may be whiter than snow.

2 O help me, dear Saviour, to patiently wait
Thy coming and cleansing, anew to create;
The grace of full pardon, O wilt Thou bestow,
And wash me that I may be whiter than snow. [Chorus]

3 My time and my talents, my goods I resign
To Thee, my dear Saviour, they always were Thine;
O make me Thy steward in all things below,
And wash me that I may be whiter than snow. [Chorus]

4 My dwelling though pitched in a wilderness here,
To me will be Eden, if Thou, Lord, art near;
Thy presence is life everlasting, I know,
Thy blood, it hath cleansed me, I’m whiter than snow. [Chorus]
