1 Just as you are there’s a welcome for you,
Just as you are, come home;
Turning away from the old to the new,
Just as you are, come home.

Chorus:
Jesus will save you just as you are,
Jesus will welcome you from afar,
Jesus will heal sin’s pitiful scar;
Just as you are, come home.

2 You cannot heal your own soul if you try,
Just as you are, come home;
Jesus must save you or else must you die,
Just as you are, come home. [Chorus]

3 Ragged and rent though your raiment has been,
Just as you are, come home;
Famished in soul and polluted by sin,
Just as you are, come home. [Chorus]

4 Come, for the Father has waited so long,
Just as you are, come home
Pardon awaits you, and welcoming song,
Just as you are, come home. [Chorus]

Showing early musical promise, William Marion Runyan (b. Marion, NY, 1870; d. Pittsburg, KS, 1957) was a substitute church organist by the age of twelve. He became a Methodist minister in 1891 and served several churches in Kansas but turned to evangelism in 1903; he worked for the Central Methodist Conference for the next twenty years. Following that service, Runyan became pastor at the Federated Church at John Brown University, Sulphur Springs, Arkansas. Editor of Christian Workers Magazine, he also served the Moody Bible Institute and was an editor for Hope Publishing Company until his retirement in 1948. Runyan wrote a number of hymn texts, gospel songs, and hymn tunes. Bert Polman Go to person page >
