As I am, O Jesus, take me

Full 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.

Chorus:
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]
