Just As I Am
Words by Charlotte Elliott

John 1:29
"The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith,
Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."

          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, tho' 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!
