Representative Text

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.

And take me as I am,
And take me as I am;
My only plea--Christ died for me!
Oh, take me as I am.

2 Helpless I am, and full of guilt;
But yet for me Thy blood was spilt,
And Thou canst make me what Thou wilt,
And take me as I am. [Chorus]

3 No preparation can I make,
My best resolves I only break,
Yet save me for Thine own name's sake,
And take me as I am. [Chorus]

4 Behold me, Savior, at Thy feet,
Deal with me as Thou seest meet;
Thy work begin, Thy work complete,
And take me as I am. [Chorus]
