139. Just as I am, without one plea

8.8.8.6

St. Crispin:

George J. Elvey, 1862

Woodworth:

William B. Bradbury, 1849

Refrain

Charlotte Elliott, 1840

Just as I am, without one plea,

But that thy blood was shed for me,

And that thou bidd'st me come to thee,

Just as I am, and waiting not

To rid my soul of one dark blot,

To thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot,

Just as I am, though tossed about

With many a conflict, many a doubt,

Fightings and fears within, without,

Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;

Sight, riches, healing of the mind

Yea, all I need, in thee to find,

Just as I am: thou wilt receive,

Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve,

Because thy promise I believe,

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.

Amen.
