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.
