++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Just as I am, without one plea

But that Thy blood was shed for me.

And that Thou bidd’st me to come to Thee,

O Lamb of God, I come.

2.  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.

3.  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.

4.  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.

5.  Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,

Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;

Because Thy promise I believe,

O Lamb of God, I come.

6.  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.

7.  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.
