Representative Text

1 To my Saviour
Now I go,
Crying, “Wash me
White as snow.”

White as snow,
White as snow,
Saviour was me
White as snow.

2 Thou art able
This I know,
Thou canst wash me
White as snow. [Refrain]

3 Saviour from me
Do not go,
Wash me, cleanse me
White as snow. [Refrain]

4 Once Thy life blood
Forth did flow,
That I might be
White as snow. [Refrain]

5 Keep me Saviour
Here below,
Clad in garments
White as snow. [Refrain]

6 Then when I from
Earth shall go,
May my soul be
White as snow. [Refrain]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856.
