Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Thou art pure, O God, my Father,
Like Thyself, may I be pure;
Doubting never, but the rather,
Make me of my cleansing sure,
That I may be hence, forever,
Whiter than the virgin snow.

2 Thou art pure, O, Holy Savior,
White-robed, spotless, I would be;
Free from sin, O, blessed favor,
Make, O make me pure like Thee,
That I may be hence, forever,
Whiter than the virgin snow.

3 Thou art pure, Eternal Spirit,
Breathe Thy Spirit into mine;
Let me now, from Thee, inherit
Perfect purity divine,
That I may be hence, forever,
Whiter than the virgin snow.

4 Father, Son, Eternal Spirit,
Ever blessed Trinity,
Faith o’ercomes my doubts’ demerit,
I take Thee, O take Thou me.
Keep, O keep me hence, forever,
Whiter than the virgin snow.
