Representative Text

1 Just as I am, O can it be,
That Christ, my Saviour, cares for me,
And in His love doth condescend,
Tho’ sinning oft, to call me friend.

Just as I am, O thought divine,
That I am His, and He is mine,
Just as I am, in tender love,
He lifts me up to heights above.

2 Just as I am, my need He knows,
And blessings rich on me bestows,
He reaches down a helping hand,
And strong in Him, secure I stand. [Chorus]

3 Just as I am, His saving grace,
Provides for me in heav’n a place,
That where He is, there I may be,
Throughout a long eternity. [Chorus]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
