Thou Art Pure O God My Father


Thou art pure, O God, my Father,
Like Thyself, may I be pure;
Doubting never, but the rather,
Make me of my cleansing sure,
That I may be hence, forever,
Whiter than the virgin snow.

Thou art pure, O, Holy Savior,
White-robed, spotless, I would be;
Free from sin, O, blessed favor,
Make, O make me pure like Thee,
That I may be hence, forever,
Whiter than the virgin snow.

Thou art pure, Eternal Spirit,
Breathe Thy Spirit into mine;
Let me now, from Thee, inherit
Perfect purity divine,
That I may be hence, forever,
Whiter than the virgin snow.

Father, Son, Eternal Spirit,
Ever blessed Trinity,
Faith o’ercomes my doubts’ demerit,
I take Thee, O take Thou me.
Keep, O keep me hence, forever,
Whiter than the virgin snow.
