374. Whiter than Snow

1 Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole;
I want You forever to live in my soul,
Break down every idol, cast out every foe;
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

Chorus:
Whiter than snow, yes, whiter than snow;
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

2 Lord Jesus, look down from Your throne in the skies,
And help me to make a complete sacrifice;
I give up myself, and whatever I know,
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. (Chorus)

3 Lord Jesus, for this I most humbly entreat,
I wait, blessed Lord, at Your crucified feet;
By faith, for my cleansing I see Your blood flow,
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. (Chorus)

4 Lord Jesus, You see that I patiently wait,
Come now, and within me a new heart create;
To those who have sought You, You never said "No,"
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. (Chorus)
