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,
Harry Plantinga

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]
