Representative Text

1 Lord Jesus, make me whole in the fount of life,
That’s made for sin-cleansing here below;
O wash me in the blood of the Crucified,
And I shall be whiter than the snow.

Refrain:
Whiter than the snow,
Whiter than the snow;
O wash me in the blood of the Crucified,
And I shall be whiter than the snow.

2 I come, dear Lord, to thee with a child-like faith,
My burden of sin is great, I know;
But thou canst wash me clean in thy precious blood,
And I shall be whiter than the snow. [Refrain]

3 I need thy pard’ning blood to my heart applied,
O thou who hast paid the debt I owe;
Then plunge me in the tide of crimson flood,
And I shall be whiter than the snow. [Refrain]
