We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Whiter than the Snow

Representative Text

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.

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]
