E. H. Hamilton

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.

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.


Helpless I am, and full of guilt;

but yet for me Thy blood was shed,

And Thou canst make me what Thou wilt,

And take me as I am.


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.


Behold me, Saviour, at Thy feet,

Deal with me as Thou seest meet;

Thy work begin, Thy work complete,

But take me as I am.
