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.

Christ, the all-sufficient Savior

I am that I am

Published in 13 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I am that I am,
Saith Christ the dear Lamb;
What think ye, O sinners,
Of this wond'rous name;

2 If now you enquire
With earnest desire,
And say O to know him,
Our hearts are on fire--

3 My master replies,
I am will suffice
Thy wants O poor sinner;
Who unto him flies.

4 I am to the blind
The light of the mind;
And feet to the cripple,
And strength shall they find.

5 If sin is thy grief,
I am thy relief;
A Savior I am, to
Poor sinners the chief.

6 O sinners, give ear,
What fulness is here?
O! who would not come to
A Savior so dear?

7 He saw from his throne,
Poor sinners undone;
And their lives to ransom,
He gave up his own.

8 He came from above,
The cause to remove;
And yet shall we slight such
Unspeakable love?

9 If we like the jews,
His kindness refuse,
'Tis plain that destruction
We wilfully chuse.

10 But O ye oppress'd
Whom sin hath distress'd,
Come, come unto Jesus,
And you shall have rest.

11 Methinks one doth cry,
"Such a sinner am I,
I dare not, I dare not
To Jesus draw nigh."

12 Christ answers again,
Thy doubting refrain,
Come, come unto me, and
I'll purge ev'ry stain.

13 Whate'er is thy case,
Come now and embrace
My precious salvation,
And thou shalt have peace."
