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

Full Text

1 As white as snow! oh can it be,
That these sweet words were meant for me?
Ah, what a rapture ‘tis to know
That I may be as white as snow.

Refrain:
As white as snow oh, can it be
That these sweet words were meant for me
As white as snow oh, can it be
That these sweet words were meant for me.

2 He called to me; in vain I sought
To turn from him in act or thought;
My soul was sick of sin and woe,
And longed to be as white as snow. [Refrain]

3 I followed him, he leads me on,
The pearly gates are almost won.
Afar the heavenly mansions glow,
Where I shall dwell as white as snow. [Refrain]

4 As white as snow was meant for thee,
And all who will from sin be free;
The rich, the poor, the high, the low,
Through faith may be as white as snow. [Refrain]
