SCENIC SUNDAYS: Whiter Than Snow










Whiter Than Snow
James Nicholson

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.


   Whiter than snow; yes, whiter than snow!
   Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.


Lord Jesus, let nothing unholy remain,
Apply Thine own blood and extract every stain;
To get this blest cleansing I all things forego;
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.


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.


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!


Lord Jesus, Thou seest I patiently wait;
Come now, and within me a new heart create;
To those who have sought Thee, Thou never saidst no;
Now wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

Nice photos of snow and love the song. I had a hymn stuck in my head this a.m. when getting ready for church...It is Well with my Soul. I got snow photos a few weeks ago when we were in Tumwater, WA and woke up to 1/2" of the white stuff. So after breakfast out I went with camera in hand. Fun. It's just cold here with fog! Have a great day.
