Re: Just as I Am, With One Plea
In Response To: Just as I Am, With One Plea ()

But! "Just as I am" renders one "hopeless", in the since of the poetry! Take me, naked, having no defense, having no exceuses, etc.! Take me, "Just as I am!"

If so, I will serve you, I will glorify you, I will willingly die for you, etc.!

The hymn is emblematic for a lot of stuff!

Oh! Heck, here are the words to this poem;

"357. Just as I Am, Without One Plea
Text: Charlotte Elliott, 1789-1871
Music: William B. Bradbury, 1816-1868
Tune: WOODWORTH, Meter: LM
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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, 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

hath broken every barrier down;

now, to be thine, yea thine alone,

O Lamb of God, I come, I come."

I have cried hundreds of times to the above call!
