                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        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 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, 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, 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, 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, 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, I come.
