129. Whiter Than Snow

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

Refrain:
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. [Refrain]

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

4 Lord Jesus, You see as 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. [Refrain]
