White as Snow

Representative Text

1 What! "lay my sins on Jesus?"
God’s well beloved Son!
No! ’tis a truth most precious,
That God even that has done.

Hallelujah, Jesus saves me,
He makes me "white as snow."
Hallelujah, Jesus saves me,
He makes me "white as snow."

2 Yes, ’tis a truth most precious,
To all who do believe,
God laid our sins on Jesus,
Who did the load receive. [Refrain]

3 What! "bring our guilt to Jesus?"
To wash away our stains;
The act is passed that freed us,
And naught to do remains. [Refrain]

He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
