Just as I am without one plea

1   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.

2   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.

3   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.


4   Just as I am, thou wilt receive,
    wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve:
    because thy promise I believe,
      O Lamb of God, I come.


5   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.


6   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.
