Just As I Am


Bryant Wright shares the powerful and beautiful words the hymn, "Just as I Am."

“All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away” (John 6:37, NIV).

There is no way to verify this, but I believe that no song is more associated with people’s public profession of faith than the hymn “Just as I Am.” Though written in 1835, the hymn’s popularity reached its apex in the second half of the 20th century, when it was so often played at the end of Billy Graham’s crusades and church services as people were invited to “walk down the aisle” and give their lives to Jesus.

And no wonder. Does any hymn summarize the declaration of a spiritual journey more succinctly than “Just as I Am”? Focus on these powerful, beautiful words of a sinner deciding to place his soul, just as he is, in the hands of Jesus.

Just as I am, without one plea,

But that Thy blood was shed for me,

And that Thou bidd’st me come to Thee,

O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, tho’ tossed about

With many a conflict, many a doubt,

Fightings and fears within, without,

O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Have you come? Will you come today—just as you are?
