115. Take me as I am

1 JESUS, my Lord, to thee I cry,
Unless thou help me I must die;
Oh, bring thy free salvation nigh,
And take me as I am!

Refrain:
Take me as I am,
Take me as I am;
Oh, bring thy free salvation nigh,
And take me as I am!

2 Helpless I am, and full of guilt,
But yet for me thy blood was split,
And thou canst make me what thou wilt,
But take me as I am!
[Refrain]

3 I thirst, I long to know thy love,
Thy full salvation I would prove;
But since to thee I cannot move,
Oh, take me as I am!
[Refrain]

4 If thou hast work for me to do,
Inspire my will, my heart renew,
And work both in and by me, too,
But take me as I am!
[Refrain]

5 And when at last the work is done,
The battle o'er, the vict'ry won,
Still, still my cry shall be alone,
Oh, take me as I am!
[Refrain]
