Just As I Am

Verse 1:

   F       C/E     G/B     C

I wondered how to come to You

   F       C/E     G/B     C

I did not dare believe it true

      F    C/E      G/B       Am      C/E

That You regard the orphaned ones: “beloved

  F        G       Csus4 C

daughters, worthy sons,”

     F     C/E     G/B    C

The broken and the barren too

   F           C/E      G/B      C

I heard could find some rest in You

       F      C/E     G/B     Am

What kind of love in injury’s place

       C/E     F          G       Csus4  C

Would leave instead the stain of grace

      F                 Dm

So I come in sorrow, I come in shame

   Am                        G

I come to the cross with my pain


     C     F     G         Am

Just as I am, without one plea

     G/B      Am                F

But that Thy blood was shed for me

     C/E        F       G       Am

And that Thou bidst me come to Thee

  G/B     C       F        F

O Lamb of God, I come, I come

Verse 2:

The pardon that I found from sin

Spilled out from where the nails went in

My heart will ever more proclaim

I had not lived until that day

And I know there is a crown for me

Beyond where mortal eyes can see

And I don’t nod to any man

But offer me just as I am

So I come rejoicing with hands held high

And I come singing words of new life
