Original text and translations
1. Just as I am, Thine own to be,
Friend of the young who lovest me,
To consecrate myself to Thee,
O Jesus Christ, I come.
2. In the glad morning of my day,
My life to give, my vows to pay,
with no reserve and no delay,
With all my heart I come.
3. I would live ever in the light,
I would work ever for the right,
I would serve Thee with all my might,
Therefore to Thee I come.
4. Just as I am, young, strong, and free,
To be the best that I can be
For truth and righteousness and Thee,
Lord of my life, I come.
