M. Farningbam

JUST as I am, Thine own to be,

Friend of the young, who lovest me,

To consecrate myself to Thee,

O Jesus Christ, I come.


In the glad morning of my day,

My life to give, my vows to pay,

With no reserve, and no delay,

With all my heart, I come.


I would live ever in the light,

I would work ever for the right,

I would serve Thee with all my might,

Therefore to Thee I come.


Just as I am, young, strong, and free,

To be the best that I can be,

For truth, and righteousness, and Thee,

Lord of my life, I come.


And for Thy sake to win renown,

And then to take the victor’s crown,

And at Thy feet to lay it down,

O Master, Lord, I come.
