Just As I Am, Thine Own to Be

Representative Text

1 Just as I am, thine own to be,
Friend of the young who lovest me,
To consecrate myself to thee,
O Jesus Christ, I come.

2 In the glad morning of my day,
My life to give, my vows to pay,
With no reserve, and no delay,
With all my heart, I come.

3 Just as I am, young, strong and free,
To be the best that I can be
For truth and righteousness and thee,
Lord of my life, I come.

4 With many dreams of fame and gold,
Success and joy to make me bold;
But dearer still my faith to hold,
For my whole life, I come.

5 And for thy sake to win renown,
And then to take my victor’s crown,
And at thy feet to cast it down,
O Master, Lord, I come.
