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]
