Just As I Am


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, and waiting not 
To rid my soul of one dark blot,
 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 and fears within, without, 
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind; 
Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
Yea, 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 
Hath broken every barrier down;
Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone, 
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, of that free love 
The breadth, length, depth, and height to prove, 
Here for a season, then above, 
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
