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.

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.
