    Verse 1
    Blessed be the Fountain of blood,
    To a world of sinners revealed;
    Blessed be the dear Son of God;
    Only by His stripes we are healed.

    Though I've wandered far from His fold,
    Bringing to my heart pain and woe,
    Wash me in the blood of the Lamb,
    And I shall be whiter than snow!

    Chorus
    Whiter than the snow!
    Whiter than the snow!
    Wash me in the blood of the Lamb,
    And I shall be whiter than snow.

    verse 2
    Thorny was the crown that He wore,
    And the cross His body o'er came;
    Grievous were the sorrows He bore,
    But He suffered Thus not in vain.

    May I to that Fountain be led,
    Made to cleanse my sins here below!
    Wash me in the Blood that He shed,
    And I shall be whiter than snow!

    Chorus
    Whiter than the snow!
    Whiter than the snow!
    Wash me in the blood of the Lamb,
    And I shall be whiter than snow.

    verse 3
    Father, I have wandered from Thee,
    Often has my heart gone astray;
    Crimson do my sins seem to me?
    Water cannot wash them away.

    Jesus, to the fountain of Thine,
    Leaning on Thy promise, I go;
    Cleanse me by Thy washing divine,
    And I shall be whiter than snow!

    Chorus
    Whiter than the snow!
    Whiter than the snow!
    Wash me in the blood of the Lamb,
    And I shall be whiter than snow.
