448. Jesus, I Come

1 Out of my bondage, sorrow, and night,
Jesus, I come, Jesus, I come;
into Tty 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 storms and into thy calm,
out of distress to jubilant psalm,
Jesus, I come to thee.

3 Out of the fear and dread of the tomb,
Jesus, I come, Jesus, I come;
into the joy and light of thy home,
Jesus, I come to thee.
Out of the depths of ruin untold,
into the peace of thy sheltering fold,
ever thy glorious face to behold,
Jesus, I come to thee.
