Representative Text

1 There is cleansing, perfect cleansing, O soul defiled!
Perfect peace this moment you may know;
Christ will cover all the sins of His trusting child,
And they shall be whiter than the snow.

Whiter than the snow,
Whiter than the snow;
Christ will cover all the sins of His trusting child,
And they shall be whiter than the snow.

2 Are you grieving o’er your guilt and infirmity?
Tell the Saviour your distress and woe!
Though the sins that stain your heart should as scarlet be,
Yet they shall be whiter than the snow.

Whiter than the snow,
Whiter than the snow;
Though the sins that stain your heart should as scarlet be,
Yet they shall be whiter than the snow.

3 Burdened and discourage soul, your redemption see!
To your Saviour in repentance go!
Your transgressions may as red as the crimson be,
Yet they shall be whiter than the snow.

Whiter than the snow,
Whiter than the snow;
Your transgressions may as red as the crimson be,
Yet they shall be whiter than the snow.
