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.

Representative Text

1 Let my soul be white in thy holy sight,
O thou righteous, perfect One;
let no mark or stain
Of my guilt remain
When thy saving work is done.

Let my soul be white in thy holy sight
Thro’ the pow’r of grace divine;
Blessed Lord, I pray,
Make me white today,
And the glory shall be thine.

2 Purified within from all taint of sin,
Make me spotless as the snow;
Trusting all to thee
Who from wrong can free,
I thy cleansing pow’r would know. [Chorus]

3 On the cruel cross, to redeem from loss,
O my Savior, thou hast died;
Hear me while I pray,
Make me white today
By thy precious blood applied. [Chorus]
