Salvation Stories Day 6 – Our Favorite Gospel Hymns: Just As I Am

For each person who now believes the Lord Jesus is precious, there was a time when the good news of the Savior beckoned them to come to Him, and they came. In a pivotal moment, with nothing to offer yet everything to receive because of grace, each soul made the choice to simply trust Him and come.

What prompted your heart to respond to the message of the gospel?

What might still be causing you to hesitate?

May today be the day you decide to simply trust Him as your Savior—and come, just as you are!

. . .

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 a conflict, many a doubt,
Fightings and fears within, without,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

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

 —Charlotte Elliott (1789–1871)
