Washed Whiter than the Snow

Representative Text

1 Out on sin’s dark mountain,
Lost in bitter woe,
Jesus found and washed me
Whiter than the snow.

Whiter than snow,
Whiter than snow;
Jesus found and washed me
Whiter than the snow.

2 Once my robes were scarlet,
Red with crimson glow,
Now they’re pure and spotless,
Whiter than the snow. [Refrain]

3 Now His presence guides me
Everywhere I go,
And His grace still keeps me
Whiter than the snow. [Refrain]

4 Sinner, why reject Him?
Harder still you grow;
Come and let Him wash you
Whiter than the snow. [Refrain]
