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!

Running from self into Christ is the escape that guarantees fulfilment in life on earth and eternity. Everyone should know the liberty in Christ Jesus!


Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria

A lovely and instructive hymn on the redemptive power of our Lord. Our Lord understands our deepest fears and limitations and wants to give us rest from the noise out there. Glory be to God.

As I kept singing this song.. I remembered the heart warming request Jesus makes to us: "Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest!"

Jesus assures us that when we come to Him no matter how big the problem is he will help!

Let's keep coming to him

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!
