1 Wonderful Deliv’rer, blessed be His name;
That He might redeem us, sent from heav’n He came;
Wonderful Redeemer, He doth life bestow
Thro’ a fount that cleanses whiter than the snow.

Whiter than the snow, whiter than the snow;
Saviour, Thou the debt hast paid,
By Thy cleansing blood I’m made
Whiter than the snow, whiter than the snow.

2 Oh, what boundless mercy, oh, what pardon flows
Down along the ages, healing all our woes;
Love of Christ abounding Grace, divine we know
There’s a fount that cleanses whiter than the snow. [Refrain]

3 We are coming, Saviour, to Thy cross we cling;
Lo! our hands are empty, we can nothing bring;
Wash us, blest Redeemer, let the blood o’erflow
From the fount that cleanses whiter than the snow. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, dear Redeemer, Saviour of my soul,
I will sing Thy praises while the ages roll,
Highest bliss of heaven mortal e’er can know,
Washed and cleansed forever whiter than the snow. [Refrain]
