Latinised Hymns

Just as I am. without one plea

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.

Just as I am, though tossed about
With many a conflict, many a doubt,
Fightings and fears within, without,
O Lamb of God, I come.

Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
Yea, all I need, in thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come.

Just as I am, thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve:
Because thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come.

Just as I am (thy love unknown
Has broken every barrier down),
Now to be thine, yea, thine alone,
O Lamb of God, I come.

Just as I am, of that free love
The breadth, length, depth, and height to prove,
Here for a season, then above,
O Lamb of God, I come.

C.Elliott

Ut nudus (dest quod invocem
divinum nisi sanguinem,
et quod me poscis comitem)
sic, Agne, te peto.

Ut nudus et lacessitus,
sive extra sive intrinsecus,
tot mentem agitantibus
sic, Agne, te peto.

Ut nudus, caecus, indigens
miserque, opes, quod sana mens
et visus, omne a te trahens,
sic, Agne, te peto.

Ut nudum me suscipies,
quem lauta labe subleves;
nunc quod mihi est in te fides
sic, Agne, te peto.

Ut nudus, fractis saepibus
(tu sic amas incognitus),
nunc totus ut fiam tuus,
sic, Agne, te peto.

Ut nudus, explorans ea
sit quanta caritas tua,
parumper hic et post supra,
sic, Agne, te peto.
