Ice Is Made

There is nothing on earth that was not made by God.

Nothing….

Ice.

Snow.

Deserts.

Flowers.

Trees.

Mountains.

Clouds.

Rocks.

Sand.

Water.

Lightning.

Animals.

Fish.

You and me…

 

 

 

From the breath of God ice is made, And the expanse of the waters is frozen.

—Job 37:10

Whiter Than Snow

Psalm 51:7

Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

I grew up hearing a hymn about being washed and cleansed.

I’m not sure if I grasped the meaning as a child, but I understand it now.

The old English words of the hymn bring my mind to a time long past, yet Jesus was there to save then just as He is today.

Whiter Than Snow by James L. Nicholson 1872

  1. Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole;
    I want Thee forever to live in my soul;
    Break down every idol, cast out every foe—
    Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

    • Refrain:
      Whiter than snow, yes, whiter than snow,
      Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
  2. Lord Jesus, let nothing unholy remain,
    Apply Thine own blood and extract every stain;
    To get this blest cleansing, I all things forego—
    Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
  3. 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.
  4. Lord Jesus, for this I most humbly entreat,
    I wait, blessed Lord, at Thy crucified feet,
    By faith for my cleansing, I see thy blood flow—
    Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
  5. Lord Jesus, Thou seest I patiently wait;
    Come now and within me a new heart create;
    To those who have sought Thee Thou never said’st “No”—
    Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
  6. The blessing by faith, I receive from above;
    Oh, glory! my soul is made perfect in love;
    My prayer has prevailed, and this moment I know,
    The blood is applied, I am whiter than snow.
