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!

I knew nothing about this Great Hymn, until The Holy Spirit Divinely Revealed it to me, way back in February, 2013, when I was in a very deep sea of affliction.

A lovely Lady thought me this hymn in a dream and I am so thankful to GOD that I remembered the first three lines when I woke up.

So I had to search it out and it has been a Tremendous Blessing to my Life.

It is a Great Proof of the fact that GOD is Always With Us and HE is Even Closer to Us than we can ever imagine.

HALLELUJAH to The KING of Kings and The LORD of Lords!!!!!!!

Both the lyrics and melody of this hymn are so soothing to the mind, body, soul and spirit. What a treasure we have in old-time hymns.

I was humming this hymn this evening cos I couldn't recall the lyrics. Asked my daughter if she did, was surprised she didn't so I looked it up. I'm glad I found it here, it assures me of the never ending love of Jesus Christ.

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!
