Story Behind the Song

This was a half-finished song for a long time, until a friend from the UK visited Pensecola in the USA, where an amazing move of God has been taking place. His description of what it felt like to be there inspired me to finish this song.


Whiter than the snow
Purer than the clearest stream
Wash me and I'll be bathed in purity
I long to feel clean

A robe of righteousness
A robe that I could not afford
My Lord you paid the price
Your perfect sacrifice has covered up my shame

And so I thank you, Jesus
For the sweet forgiveness of the cross
It's a mystery to amaze even angels
That when Father looks into my heart
He sees me now as whiter than the snow
