JUST AS I AM, I COME BROKEN TO BE MENDED

Charlotte Elliot, William B. Bradbury

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

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

* I come broken to be mended
I come wounded to be healed
I come desperate to be rescued
I come empty to be filled
I come guilty to be pardoned
By the blood of Christ the Lamb
And I’m welcomed with open arm
Praise God, just as I am

Just as I am I would be lost
But mercy and grace my freedom bought
And now to glory in Your cross
O, Lamb of God, I come, I come
