Lord I am fondly, earnestly longing into thy holy likeness to grow.
Thirsting for more and deeper communion, yearning thy love more fully to know.
Open the wells of grace and salvation, pour the rich streams deep into my heart.
Cleanse and refine my thought and affection, seal me and make me pure as thou art.
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.
Whiter than snow, yes, whiter than snow. 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.
More gratitude give me. More trust in the Lord.
More pride in his glory. More hope in his word.
More tears for his sorrows, more pain at his grief.
More meekness in trial, more grace for relief.
Just as I am without one plea but that thy blood was shed for me.
And that thou bidst me come to thee, O Lamb of God I come, I come.
Just as I am, though tossed about with many a conflict, many a doubt.
Fightings and fears within, without, O Lamb of God , I come, I come.
Just as I am, thou wilt receive. Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve.
Because thy promise I believe, O Lamb of God, I come, I come.
My Jesus as thou wilt. All shall be well for me.
Each changing future scene I gladly trust with thee.
Straight to my home above I travel calmly on
And sing in life or death, “My Lord, thy will be done.”
Man may trouble and distress me, twill but drive me to thy breast.
Life with trials hard may press me and will bring me sweeter rest.
O, tis not in grief to harm me while thy love is left to me.
O, were not in joy to charm me were that joy unmixed with thee.
