Just As I Am by Matt Maher Acoustic

Matt Maher sings and plays his song Just As I Am as one of a series of renditions of his songs at the Steinway Factory.

The lyrics:

In shackles and chains
I came to your door
And fell on the floor
Of mercy
Guilty I stood, guilty I was
I couldn’t hide my shame

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I’ll never be the same again
My life held in your hands
Just as I am

You saved a place
Amazing grace
You came all the way
To meet me

Carried me home
With a ring and a robe
Threw your loving arms around me

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I’ll never be the same again
My life held in your hands

Just as I am
Without one plea
But that your blood was shed for me
And that you bid me come to thee
Oh Lamb of God 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
Oh Lamb of God I come, I come

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I’ll never be the same again
My life held in your hands

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I will never be the same again
My life held in your hands

Oh my life is held in your hands
Just as I am
Just as I am

Just As I Am – Sunday Songs

Not the hymn, Just As I Am is a new song from Matt Maher and friends.

The lyrics:

In shackles and chains
I came to your door
And fell on the floor
Of mercy

Guilty I stood
Guilty I was
I couldn’t hide my shame

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in I’ll never be
The same again
My life held in your hands
Just as I am

You saved a place
Amazing grace
You came all the way
To meet me

Carried me home
With a ring and a robe
Threw your loving arms around me

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in I’ll never be the same again
My life held in your hands

Just as I am
Without one plea
But that your blood was shed for me
And that you bid me come to thee
Oh Lamb of God 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
Oh Lamb of God I come, I come

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I’ll never be the same again
My life held in your hands

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I will never be the same again
My life held in your hands
Oh my life is held in your hands
Just as I am
Just as I am
