Travis Cottrell “Just as I Am”: Simple Gift Sunday

Travis Cottrell Just as I Am video and devotion

The first part of this Travis Cottrell song is an old favorite from my childhood. It isn’t sung much in contemporary worship, but I love this version with the added chorus.

I come broken to be mended
I come wounded to be healed
I come desperate to be rescued
I come empty to be filled
I come guilty to be pardoned 
By the blood of Christ the Lamb
And I’m welcomed with open arms
Praise God, just as I am

I hope Sunday finds you worshipping and cherishing the fact that you are “welcomed with open arms” just as you are.

1 VERSE:

Just as I am, without one plea
But that Thy blood was shed for me
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee
O Lamb of God, I come, I come

2 VERSE:
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 of God, I come, I come

CHORUS:
I come broken to be mended
I come wounded to be healed
I come desperate to be rescued
I come empty to be filled
I come guilty to be pardoned 
By the blood of Christ the Lamb
And I’m welcomed with open arms
Praise God, just as I am

3 VERSE:
Just as I am, I would be lost
But mercy and grace my freedom bought
And now to glory in Your cross 
Oh Lamb of God I come, I come

  3. Thanks, Marty. Nice interlude in this Sunday of visiting my mother-in-law in a nursing home on hospice, cleaning out her apartment, needing to find all sorts of documents for nursing home Medicaid waiver. Craziness.. I needed this.
