Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

As I am, O Jesus, take me

Representative Text

1 As I am, O Jesus, take me,
I no longer will rebel;
Let thy holy Spirit break me,
And within me ever dwell.

As I am, O Jesus, take me,
Here I give myself to Thee;
Savior, take me, break, and make me,
All that Thou would'st have me be

2 Take me, Lord, as Thou hast found me,
Guilty, vile and far from Thee,
Satan's fetters fastened round me,
Take me, Lord, and make me free. [Chorus]

3 Break me, Lord, from love of sinning,
Break, O break my stubborn will,
Now the work of grace beginning,
Let Thy love my spirit fill. [Chorus]

4 Make me, Lord, what thou would'st have me,
Make me like Thyself to be,
Make me pure and make me holy,
Consecrated unto Thee. [Chorus]
