#242: Jesus, I Come

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

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 storms 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 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.
