Just as I am, a little one,
I trust myself to God’s dear Son;
It matters not what I have done,
Oh, loving Christ, I come.

Refrain

I come, I come, I come,
Trusting myself to God’s dear Son;
I come, I come, I come,
Oh, loving Christ, I come.

Just as I am, before I know
The paths that lead to sin and woe,
Just as I’d to my mother go,
To Thee, dear Christ, I come.

Refrain

Just as I am, no need to say
I’ll wait for yet another day,
For tiny feet may go astray,
So now to Christ I come.

Refrain

Just as I am, I’m not afraid:
The way so easy has been made;
For it was Christ Himself who said,
Let little children come.

Refrain
