Happy Easter!

 

I know a lot of hymns having grown up as a preacher's kid.  But it's an invitational that is and always will be my very favorite.  It has been powerful to me in so many circumstances in which I was powerless to 'fix it,' whatever 'it' may be.

In honor of Easter, I'll share my favorite verses. 

 

Just As I Am by Charlotte Elliott


Just as I am without one plea

But that thy blood was shed for me

And that thou bidst me come to thee,

Oh 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

Oh Lamb of God, I come, I come

 

Just as I am thou wilt receive

Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve

Because thy promise I believe

Oh Lamb of God, I come, I come
