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 learned this song as child going to church with my family. The Lord just dropped it into my heart before I started to prey. It is an anointed song.

Thank you for these lyrics. I received Christ as Savior when I was 7. I'm now 71. In Church ministry all through with this song central since my youth. Right now, a group of us are contending against deceit and deception that has ravaged our Church from an unGodly top leader. As I prayed for my Church and my band of Soldiers this morning, I cried to the Lord with tears in my eyes - saying: "I come to you Redeemer, buy you too - Maranatha to my Church, Lord Jesus. Reclaim, Redeem, Revive us Lord."

This is the song that opened my heart to receive Jesus when I was eight years old, a child who was filled with sin and self and sorrow in the aftermath of her older brother's death.
