467. Just as I Am, Without One Plea

The Hymnal 1982 #693 Psalter Hymnal #263 Trinity Hymnal #502
Charlotte Elliott Charlotte Elliott Charlotte Elliott
1 Just as I am, without one plea
but that thy blood was shed for me,
and that thou bidd'st me come to thee,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

2 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.

3 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.

4 Just as I am (thy love unknown
has broken ev'ry barrier down),
now to be thine, and thine alone,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

5 Just as I am, of that free love
the breadth, depth, length, and height to prove.
here for a season, then above--
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.
