106. Whiter than Snow

1 Dear Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole;
I want thee forever to live in my soul;
Break down every idol, cast out every 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 Dear Jesus, let nothing unholy remain;
Apply thine own blood, and extract ev'ry stain;
To have this blest washing I all things forego,
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
[Chorus]

3 Dear Jesus, come 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]

4 Dear 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]

5 Dear 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]

6 The blessing by faith I receive from above;
O glory! my soul is made perfect in love;
My prayer has prevailed, and this moment I know
The blood is applied, I am whiter than snow.
[Chorus]
