SCENIC SUNDAYS: Just As I Am

A vintage country church at Burritt's on the Mountain, Huntsville, AL



"Easter says you can put Truth in a grave, 
but It won't stay there.".
--Clarence Hall



Just As I Am


Just as I am, without one plea, 
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou biddest 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!

Just as I am, though tossed about, 
With many conflict, many a doubt, 
Fighting fears within, without, 
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

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!

Just as I am, Thou wilit receive, 
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve,
Because Thy promise I believe, 
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!





Go here to listen to a verse of this classic hymn....

Joni,
Beautiful picture. Wonderful hymn. Whenever I heard that hymn for an altar call growing up, or even today if I heard it, I'd be right up front!
Hope you have a blessed and glorious Easter!

Wow, I don't think I have ever read the third verse of 'Just As I Am'--what powerful and meaningful words! Thanks for sharing it on your blog and I hope your Easter was a blessed one!
Blessings,
Aimee

Such a lovely blog, I have thoroughly ejoyed my visit, I have become a follower too. Like you I grew up in a small town in Michigan, lived there until 1970 then we moved South, we have lived in the South petty much ever since.
God bless you as you serve him in MI, I serve him in GA now. We had a wonderful Easter, my dh preached in Florida and it was a glorious day.
Be Blessed, Be a Blessing, Barbara
