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!

"Anything that disturbs rest in Him must be cured at once, and it is not cured by being ignored, but by coming to Jesus Christ." - Oswald Chambers

God is so faithful to lead me back to this beautiful hymn and to read testimonies of His children from all over the world. He is Emmanuel!

Praise the Lord. There is hope. We can come to the Lord away from our various condition into God. Thank You Lord. Keep us coming to You.

I arrived early at the office and as I thought about my struggles with sin, this hymn came to my mind. I needed it to sooth me out of my sin and arrogant pride. Wonderful message.

So grateful for this site. I have looked thru my many hymnals and old song books with no luck. Only remembering a few words makes it really tricky finding the hymn, but you did it in seconds. Thank you so much. Now I can get back to the settings where we sang it.
