Lelia N. Morris (1862–1929)



Just as I am I come to Thee,
Myself I cannot better make;
The precious blood my only plea,
Oh, save me for Thy mercy’s sake.


Just as I am,
Just as I am I come to Thee;
Oh, hear me, bless me, save me, Lord,
Just as I am I come to Thee.

Just as I am, yet this I know,
The blood will all-sufficient be;
I shall be whiter than the snow,
Made fully whole in trusting Thee.


Just as I am I come today,
My hungry soul cries out for Thee;
I can no longer stay away,
Thine, wholly Thine, I long to be.


Just as I am, my Life, my Love,
My soul here finds a perfect rest;
While, like the weary, wandering dove,
Safe folded in Thy love I rest.
