Jesus, my Lord, to Thee I cry

1
Jesus, my Lord, to Thee I cry;
Unless Thou save me, I must die:
Oh, bring Thy free salvation nigh,
  And take me as I am!
  And take me as I am!
  And take me as I am!
My only plea—Christ died for me!
    Oh, take me as I am!
2
Helpless I am, and full of guilt;
But yet for me Thy blood was spilt,
And Thou canst make me what Thou wilt,
  And take me as I am.
3
No preparation can I make,
My best resolves I only break,
Yet save me for Thine own Name’s sake,
  And take me as I am.
4
Behold me, Savior, at Thy feet,
Deal with me as Thou seest meet;
Thy work begin, Thy work complete,
  But take me as I am.

I learnt this song about two decades ago. It's a song that revives my soul and kindle fire on my prayer altar. I love it so much, particularly the Igala (a tribe/ language in Nigeria) version.

Who is but the chiefest of all who've failed the Lord if not myself? But herein is hope for me: "My only plea, Christ died for me... And Thou can make me what Thou will..."

Lord, give me grace to walk with You.

"No preparation can I make,

My best resolves I only break,

Yet save me for Thine own Name’s sake,

And take me as I am."

My heart cries out to you Lord.

For thine own name's sake Lord, just take me as I am.

"Unless Thou save me, I must die!"

In a world of temptations and sin.

Lor, in You I put my trust.

Hold me with Your mighty hand.

Take me as I am on the last day.

I've blown it big time! I know the only way God will deal with me is just to take me as I am, otherwise I'm done!

I first learnt about this song during my NYSC Christian conference in Nigeria over 10 years ago during Bro Gbile ministration it has been in my memory since then can't ever forget it.

I have come to the very end of my strength in my Christian life. I have failed again and again, I have made many supposedly firm resolutions, countless times, and broken them all. I am completely tired. This song is the only thing I can find in my heart, as an expression of how I feel before God. If He doesn't help me, then I know I am done for.
