"JUST AS I AM"

Verse 1
When people ask why I love You, I love to explain
Why I hunger for Your sweet touch, again and again.
Why do I rush into Your arms
Like the wind-driven sand?
Because You love me, just as I am.

Verse 2
You’ve helped make the good times, loved me through the bad;
You give the best loving, ooooh, I’ve ever had.
When all, all others left me,
You were there to hold my hand, ‘cause You love me

Chorus 1
Just as I am, just lil’ ol’ me,
When I’m the hero or just another wannabe.
You always care, You understand,
Because You love me just as I am.

Verse 3
For richer or poorer, in sickness or in health,
There’s one thing I’m sure of,
Oh, we have our own kind of wealth.
I know I may get old and gray,
But I won’t die a lonely man, because You love me

Chorus 2
Just as I am, just lil’ ol’ me,
When I’m the hero or just another wannabe.
You always care, You understand,
Because You love me just as I am.

Bridge
Without You I would be nothin’,
You’re the reason, I’m breathin’ and alive.
Without You, Lord, life has no meaning,
Only left here to struggle, struggle and survive.
----
You always care, You understand,
Because You love me, oh, I thank You for lovin’ me

Chorus 3
Just as I am, [Just lil’ ol’ me] Just little ol’ me,
[When I’m the hero] Oh, You’re the hero
[Or just another wannabe. You always care]
Lord, You’ll always care, [You understand]
Because You love me just as I am.
