1 My robes were once all stain’d 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;
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, it cleanseth white as snow. [Refrain]

3 I do not doubt, nor do I say,
“I hope the stains are washed away,”
For in His Word I read it so:
His blood it cleanseth white as snow. [Refrain]

4 Oh, who will come and wash today,
Till all their stains are washed away;
Until by faith they see and know
Their robes are washed as white as snow? [Refrain]
