Just As I Am

Posted | 15 comments

A                E       A 
Just as I am without one plea, 
    E         D        E        A 
but that Thy blood was shed for me; 
A                       D  
And that Thou biddst me come to Thee, 
   A              E       A 
Oh Lamb of God, I come, I come. 

Just as I am, and waiting not, 
To rid my soul of one dark blot, 
To Thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot, 
O Lamb of God I come, I come! 

Just as I am, tho' tossed about 
With many a conflict, many a doubt, 
Fightings within, and fears without, 
O Lamb of God I come, I come! 

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive, 
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve; 
Because Thy promise I believe, 
O Lamb of God I come, I come! 

Just as I am, Thy love unknown, 
Hath broken ev'ry barrier down; 
Now to be Thine, yea Thine alone, 
O Lamb of God I come, I come! 

Just as I am, of that free love, 
The breadth, length, depth, the height to prove, 
Here for a season then above, 
O Lamb of God I come, I come!


  1. Hi Craig
    How easy is it to get the chord symbol over the place where the chord begins or changes?
    They seem to be in the wrong place in Just As I Am, unless you are not intending to be displayign the chords for the version popularised in the Billy Graham Crusades.

    If you are, I reckon the first chord in line 1, should be over “As” and the first chord in line 2 and 3 over the word “that”
    I won’t even mention the typo in “bidst.”

  2. Hi David, I’ll make the changes you suggest when I get a chance, thanks

  3. Thanks for the chords. This is awesome for beginners and I love this song (:. Seriously appreciate it.

  4. Just a note: When doing your own music, always use a non-porportionally spaced fonts like Courier New. Most other fonts are proportinally spaced (different letters recieved different spacing)and look and print different on differnt software and printers. If you use Courier New, and space the chords with the SPACE BAR, you should be able to copy, paste and print without chords moving all over the place. Non-Prop fonts are not as pretty but more predictable across different printers, software etc.

  5. God bless this is so great to start with. my prayers are answered

  6. I have always wanted to learn to play worship songs without having to learn syncopated rhythms of secular music. Great stuff. God bless

  7. Great song, thanks!

  8. Metal Method. Complete guitar. Total success.

  9. What tune is this? There are 3 or 4 commonly used for ‘Just as I am’. I’m looking for Saffron Walden

  10. What strumming pattern could one use with this song?

  11. Chord changes are often displayed at the wrong place as a result of changes in font or font size. Copy and paste them as unformatted text into wordpad or a simple text editor, then select all and assign “courier new” which is a true type font, this may place them correctly or at least in the spot that the original typist planted them. Hope this helps.
    In Christ Jesus,

  12. hi,
    please might you be able to post some simple guitar chords for ‘for unto us a child is born’ (not the handel’s messiah version, but the old-style christmas carol).
