‘Just As I Am’

My aunts used to sing this hymn as they went about their housework; and it was played at Aunt Millie’s funeral: Just As I Am, sung here by the Voice of Eden. In Christ we now have family in India, too.

  1. I used to be an active member in the Southern Baptist church and no worship service ended until this hymn was sung for an altar call. Billy Graham used it in his campaigns, but then again, he was Southern Baptist. Our brothers in India have jazzed it up a bit – I like it!

  2. It’s a wonderful hymn. Even though its in the Lutheran Hymnal, I don’t recall ever singing it when I attended the Lutheran Church during the first 20 years of my life.

    It wasn’t until I started to attend a hand-clapping, foot stomping, pew jumping, hallelujah shouting, with an altar call at the end of the service, in a Pentecostal church that I first heard it and began to sing, with tears streaming down my face. Our hymn book only had five verses, but there is a sixth verse in the Lutheran Hymnal. It goes like this:

    Just as I am; Thy love unknown
    Has broken every barrier down.
    Now to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,
    O Lamb of God, I come, I come.
