Christ the Fountain

Verse 1:
Fountain of purity opened for sin,
Here may the penitent wash and be clean;
Jesus, Thou blessed Redeemer from woe,
Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

Refrain:
Whiter than snow, whiter than snow,
Wash me, Redeemer,
And I shall be whiter than snow.

Verse 2:
Though I have labored again and again,
All my self-cleansing is utterly vain;
Jesus, Redeemer from sorrow and woe,
Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

Verse 3:
Cleanse Thou the thoughts of my heart, I implore,
Help me Thy light to reflect more and more;
Daily in loving obedience to grow,
Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.

Verse 4:
Whiter than snow! nothing further I need,
Christ is the Fountain; this only I plead;
Jesus, my Saviour, to Thee I will go,
Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.
