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!

This song led me to Jesus at age 14 at a Church of Christ in Taft, California. I obeyed the gospel and was water baptized by immersing on 11 April 1963. I want everyone to know Him and be saved. ~selah

Never heard of it till now. Guess our minds as young people are being successfully being drawn to the New-Christian music, which is all nonsense. But may our Sovereign Lord help us win the race to heaven.

So my mom asked me to download it for her and I find myself continuously playing it.

"Out of my shameful failure and loss, out of the sorrows, out of distress, out OF UNREST AND ARROGANT PRIDE, Jesus I come." My exact current problems but Jesus I come to Thee.

Such a blessing I think of these old hymns compared to the modern worship songs and those modern worship songs are nothing compared to old hymns. You know the first encouragement a Christian needs is the encouragement of good Godly music, and the modern worship is not good Godly music. These hymns encouraged me a lot more than the modern music did. I was encouraged to keep on going though the race is tough farther along we'll understand it all by and by. Jesus saves and to God be the glory for in Jesus Name for Christ sake, and His cause.

We sang this at the funeral of a dear and pious friend, who had left us early, when her family still needed her. I don't know whether she had requested it while she was ill: but I believe she marched across the Jordan.
