We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

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.

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]
