Representative Text

MY robes were once all stained with sin;
I knew not how to make them clean
Until a voice said, sweet and low:
Go wash, I’ll make them white as snow.

Refrain:
I’ve washed my robes in Jesus’ blood,
And he has made them white as snow.

2 That promise: Whosoever will,
Included me, includes me still;
I came, and ever since I know
His blood has cleansed me white as snow.

3 I do not doubt, nor do I say:
I hope the stains are washed away;
For in my heart I read it so,
His blood has cleansed me white as snow.

4 O who will come and wash today
Till all their sins are washed away,
Until, by faith, they see and know
Their robes are washed as white as snow?
