Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1087. Whiter than the Snow

1 A fount of cleansing flows so free
From that blest mount of Calvary;
What virtue in this stream I see,
Its healing waters cover me.

Refrain:
Whiter than the snow, the beautiful snow,
Whiter than the snow He has made me;
Whiter than the snow, the beautiful snow,
Whiter than the snow He has made me.

2 My heart a crimson hue was stained,
No righteousness in me remained;
I could not stem sin’s rushing flow,
Till I was whiter than the snow. [Refrain]

3 ’Tis not by works lest one should boast,
But by the blessed Holy Ghost;
The cleansing blood, by faith I know,
Has made me whiter than the snow. [Refrain]

4 All glory to the Lord most high,
Who dwells in all the earth and sky;
Who brought redemption to the soul,
Prepared our home beyond life’s goal. [Refrain]
