Out of my bondage, sorrow, and night

1
Out of my bondage, sorrow, and night,
  Jesus, I come! Jesus, I come!
Into Thy freedom, gladness, and light,
    Jesus, I come to Thee!
Out of my sickness into Thy health,
Out of my want and into Thy wealth,
Out of my sin and into Thyself,
    Jesus, I come to Thee!
2
Out of my shameful failure and loss,
  Jesus, I come! Jesus, I come!
Into the glorious gain of Thy cross,
    Jesus, I come to Thee!
Out of earth's sorrows into Thy balm,
Out of life's storm and into Thy calm,
Out of distress to jubilant psalm,
    Jesus, I come to Thee!
3
Out of unrest and arrogant pride,
  Jesus, I come! Jesus, I come!
Into Thy blessed will to abide,
    Jesus, I come to Thee!
Out of myself to dwell in Thy love,
Out of despair into raptures above,
Upward for aye on wings like a dove,
    Jesus, I come to Thee!
4
Out of the fear and dread of the tomb,
  Jesus, I come! Jesus, I come!
Into the joy and pleasure, Thine own,
    Jesus, I come to Thee!
Out of the depths of ruin untold,
Into the flock Thy love doth enfold,
Ever Thy glorious face to behold,
    Jesus, I come to Thee!

If in despair and lost in the madness of this life... Singing this song has made to stay calm in Him alone. Hallelujah to the Lamb!!!

I give a heartfelt "thank you" to hymnal. net for the easy accessibility of hymn lyrics! I sang this hymn many times in my childhood and youth. The words are so moving as encouragement in our day-by-day renewal as Jesus grows us in further sanctification. The other comments bring such joy to my heart as I consider eternity together with our great Savior!

It's a hymn of God's light in the midst of death and darkness. I sang it silently among other hymns and choruses during the 4 days of my kidnap, Aug 2021, and He came and rescued me. Hallelujah. A glorious HYMN

I got to listen to this hymn today. I had to search online for it's copy in sofa notation.

It's so amazing.

It's to be added to the list of song in our Choir for liturgical functions in our Church.

So refreshing.

I learned this song as child going to church with my family. The Lord just dropped it into my heart before I started to prey. It is an anointed song.

Thank you for these lyrics. I received Christ as Savior when I was 7. I'm now 71. In Church ministry all through with this song central since my youth. Right now, a group of us are contending against deceit and deception that has ravaged our Church from an unGodly top leader. As I prayed for my Church and my band of Soldiers this morning, I cried to the Lord with tears in my eyes - saying: "I come to you Redeemer, buy you too - Maranatha to my Church, Lord Jesus. Reclaim, Redeem, Revive us Lord."
