Just as I am

People of a certain eveangelical generation will be familiar with the hymn "Just as I am". It was often used when the altar call was made. Like many aspects of the evangelical sub-culture of a generation ago, it has been subjected to mild ridicule and seen as a sentimental relic of a bygone age.

This video that tells the story of Charlotte Elliot - author of the hymn - reveals how the hymn was borne out of great pain and a discovery of God's amazing grace.
