282. Lord Jesus, I Long to Be

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,
Come now, and within me a new heart create;
To those who have sought Thee,
Thou never saidst "No,"
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. [Chorus]

Amen.
