~Just as I am

I got a new CD by Lois and India Rasquinha called Consecration. It is amazing! I love it! All the songs really hit me and speak to my heart. So I thought I'd share my favorite (so far) from the CD.
So they sang the traditional "Just as I am" but have a chorus with it. I've never heard it before, maybe you have? It's beautiful!

I come broken to be mended
I come wounded to be healed
I come desperate to be rescued
I come empty to be filled
I come guilty to be pardoned 
By the blood of Christ the Lamb
And I'm welcomed with open arms
Praise God! Just as I am!

What songs really speak to you? 


  1. That's beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I have always loved Just As I Am so it'll be interesting to hear that extra part.

  2. Yes I've heard that before (New Crestion Chorus) and I love it too!!

  3. And these Lois & India people, do they use instruments at all? Would you rev omens their CDs?

    1. Yes they use instruments. Mainly piano. I LOVE their last two CDs. I wasn't as impressed with the others. But they have absolutely beautiful harmony!
      Some of their songs are on youtube.
      This is their web sit- http://www.loisandindia.com/
      Also the youtube videos- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnDhHygtrhg&index=2&list=PLGEOLpXXemWCK_eoULRQiVdhRW0c3k53A

    2. Ok I'll have to check them out some more-- thanks! And sorry about that typo! ;) Guess you figured out that I meant "recommend".

  4. Some songs that really speak to me:
    "Spirit of God Descend Upon my Heart", "Day by Day", "More Love to Thee O Christ", and "Lord I Am Fondly Earnestly Longing". That's just naming a few.

    Sometimes I just love these for the lyrics and that's it. There's so much meat in them. The writers were able to pack so much into one poem/song.

  5. That sounds like a good song! A song that speaks to me is Alone by Hollyn. Have you ever heard that?

    1. I don't think so. I'll have to check it out!
