Lyrics

Verse 1
Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole;
I want thee forever to live in my soul;
Break down ev’ry idol, cast out ev’ry 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.

Verse 2
Lord Jesus, look down from thy 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.

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

Verse 4
Lord Jesus, thou seest I patiently wait:
Come now, and within me a new heart create;
To those who have sought thee, thou never said’st “No,”
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
