Well…day 3 is always hard. One of my goals was working on arranging a hymn so I decided to tackle that tonight. My favorite one is “Just As I Am.” This is my attempt at updating it. Sorry…I messed up several times and was a bit passionate but I can’t seem to do it perfectly tonight! I’m too old for these late nights anymore…
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 I come, I come!
Just as I am, though tossed about, with many conflicts many doubts,
Fightings within and fears without, O Lamb I come, I come!
Just as I am without one plea, but that your blood was shed for me
And that you bid me come to Thee, O Lamb of God, I come! I come!
Just as I am, poor wretched, blind, sight riches, healing of the mind
Yes all I need in Thee to find, O Lamb I come! I come!
Just as I am, You will receive, You welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve
Because Your promise I believe, O Lamb I come! O Lamb I come!
Just as I am, Thy love unknown, has broken every barrier down,
No to be yours, and yours alone, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
