Just as I Am Lyrics
Dear Lord, I'm on my knees again.
I come to You because You understand.
I've tried so hard, but I just can't change myself
That's why I know I need Your help.
So here I am
This in my plea
My only hope is Your love for me.
I'm reaching out
Come take my hand; take all of me.
Just as I am.
Oh Lord, You make what's broken new.
Why can't I just learn to follow You?
I want to know You and feel You in my soul.
I surrender all control.
I am not afraid to follow You where You lead me.
I can leave the past behind me.
I'm forgiven and I'm free.
By David Phelps and Cindy Morgan
I played around with the melody to this song first, and the lyric just followed a little while after. It is my very personal expression to God that I have tried so many times to change myself, but I am not capable of doing that. I need His help so much. The Chorus says, "So here I am...my only hope is your love for me...take all of me, just as I am." I am so grateful that I don't have to change myself before coming to Christ - He loves each of us right where we are.
