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!

I love this hymn indeed. Whenever I am seeking God's deliverance in any area of my life, I normally repent my sins and most of the time I am led by the Holy Spirit to sing this hymn. It really ushers me into God's presence.

I thank God for the pastor who started our Pentecostal church (which has grown into several assemblies for the last 15 years). This pastor was has since gone back to Canada was used by God to nurture the church members in walking in holiness and singing in hymns alot. I attribute my love for hymns to his mentorship. Glory be to God.

This song spells out various aspects in our lives. I love Stanza 3 best. May the good Lord help us as we meditate upon the wonderful words.

Never usually put comments on websites! But looked up this hymn because I recently revisited a football ground in London, 29 years after attending a Luis Palau "Mission to London" rally as a student. As someone has commented on a Billy Graham rally, this hymn was also used at the altar call at the Mission to London. Thank God for the love and commitment of people who work tirelessly to share the salvation they have received with others.

The hymn reaches to the deepest valley within and uplifts the soul to the highest zenith. Thank You, Jesus, for Your sacrifice that makes these possible. The posted comments of others have multiplied my blessing.

Wonderful tune, beautiful lyrics composed many years ago yet I can relate with every piece of this music. It is among a collection of hymns I have been listening to lately, bringing me into total awareness of Christ's boundless love...

This song has blessed me so often. I remember the Billy Graham Hour of Decision playing it at Billy's invitation for people to commit to Christ. I have recently seen several come to the Lord through witnessing to them. When I listened to the Gaither Homecoming sing this, I marvelled at how wonderful for these souls to so have the Savior. I am so humbled to be saved from my sins and brought into fellowship with God.
