Out of my bondage, sorrow, and night

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!
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!
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!
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!

I am very much like someone who has commented above. Woke up seeking the Lord and bits of this song began running thru my mind. Couldn't find it, and nearly gave up, but found it here. More importantly finding the Lord Jesus to be present, real and true... good for His promises.

Though I have heard this hymn sung for years, only this morning did I see and appreciate its beauty and depth. WOW! We come humbly to Jesus as sick, depraved paupers and He graciously pours out upon us healing, holiness and eternal wealth!

This song came to me in my dreams tonight - wonderful memories of gospel services in a little meeting hall some 60 years ago now. ‘Ever Thy Glorious Face to Behold’, Jesus I Come to Thee! ’

At 3:00pm today - Resurrection Sunday, I was desperately crying out to God to help me overcome my weaknesses, crying to God to baptize me in his love, as I was praying, I got this song in my spirit: "Out of my bondage". I didn't know the lyrics. So I searched and found it here and every line is so profound and I appreciate it so much, exactly the plea of my heart as I was praying in the spirit.

I woke up wanting more from the relationship I have with God and His only Begotten Son Jesus our Lord, and as I prepared to worship, the tune and scraps of the lyrics of this song came to mind. I could not find it in my old hymnal, so I chose another song. But I could not get my mind away from this song. I searched and behold here it is and here I am. It blessed, and is still blessing my soul, because it places the right words into my mouth that express my heart's needs, and what it wants to say and sing to my Lord. The testimonies of the others are also an inspiration and encouragement to me.
