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!

As I prepared to talk with God this morning, the Spirit brought this song to mind. It speaks the story of what God has done and is doing right now in my life for my deliverance. Praise be to God!

Does anyone remember this song from the old tent revival meetings? Sung over and over as people went forward to give their life to the Lord.

I used to sing this hymn as a child in church. I’m so thrilled to have rediscovered it today thanks to this website. The words are like a sweet balm and comfort and reassurance to my soul. “Jesus I come to thee. ” I love reading all the comments from all over the world. God bless you all and heal us. Be so close to us Lord.
