The hymn was written by Charlotte Elliott in 1835. Charlotte wrote this song after suffering an illness that left her disabled. She saw others serving the Lord and wanted to do the same. Elliott, an English woman, wrote all the reasons why she trusted God.
Just as I am, without one plea But that Thy blood was shed for me And that Thou bid’st me come to Thee O Lamb of God, I come! I come!
Billy Graham heard this song as a teenager and gave his life to Christ while attending a revival service. Graham selected this song because he believed the song reflected the choice to follow God. His autobiography is also named Just As I Am. Be inspired by this classic hymn and the powerful meaning behind it.
