Representative Text

1 We’ll shout and sing, make heaven ring with praises to our King,
Who bled and died, was crucified, that He might pardon bring;
His blood can save a soul, can cleanse and make it whole—
The blood of Jesus cleanseth white as snow, white as snow.

Refrain:
The blood of Jesus cleanseth white as snow, white as snow,
The blood of Jesus cleanseth white as snow, white as snow;
I bless the happy day when He washed my sins away,
The blood of Jesus cleanseth white as snow, white as snow.

2 In cheerful lays our voices raise to Him our songs of praise;
We loud proclaim His blessed name and wonders of His ways,
While this, the story sweet, we joyfully repeat—
The blood of Jesus cleanseth white as snow, white as snow. [Refrain]

3 His name so sweet, His love complete, we own, and kiss His feet;
To purify and sanctify, His promises are meet;
All glory to His name, with rapture we proclaim—
The blood of Jesus cleanseth white as snow, white as snow. [Refrain]
