332. Just as I Was--Without One Plea

8,8,8,6.
by Charlotte Elliott, 1841
1
Just as I was—without one plea,
 
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
 
And that Thou bad'st me come to Thee,
 
O Lamb of God, I came!
Matthew 11:28
2
Just as I was—poor, wretched, blind:
 
Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
 
Yea, all I need in Thee to find,
 
O Lamb of God, I came!
Revelation 3:17; Psalm 34:6
3
Just as I am—Thy love, I own,
 
Has broken every barrier down;
 
Now to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,
 
O Lamb of God, I come!
4
Just as I am—of that free love,
 
The fullness and the depth to prove,
 
Here for a season, then above—
 
O Lamb of God, I come!
“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
“Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.” (Revelation 3:17)
“This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.” (Psalm 34:6)
