Take Me as I Am

Verse 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.

Refrain:
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.

Verse 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.

Verse 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.

Verse 4:
Behold me, Saviour, at Thy feet,
Deal with me as Thou seest meet;
Thy work begin, Thy work complete,
And take me as I am.
