Whiter Than Snow

Whiter Than Snow
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.
 
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, 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.
 
Whiter than snow, yes, whiter than snow,
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
 


Song: 'Whiter Than Snow'

Hi Adrienne! I love this scripture and the olden hymn. Thank you for popping in to see me and I loved your little grand story! Children are just little hoots aren't they?
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I'm so sorry for the loss of your kitty. My oldest daughter and her family just lost their beloved pug dog that they got as a pup during the long years they struggled with infertility. Three year old granddaughter sobbed and lamented, "I need a dog at my age"! :)
