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.

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]
