Just as I am

 

Just as I am, without one plea,

but that Thy blood was shed for me,

and that thou bid’st me come to Thee,

O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

 

Just as I am and waiting not

to rid my soul of one dark blog;

to Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,

O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

 

Just as I am, though tossed about

with many a conflict, many a doubt;

fightings within, and fears without,

O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

 

Just as I am, poor wretched, blind;

sight, riches, healing for the mind;

yes, all I need, in Thee to find,

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!

 

Just as I am, Thy love unknown

has broken every barrier down;

Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,

O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
