JESUS, I COME!

A beauiful hymn in devotion today~ written by William T. Sleeper, 1819 and George C. Stebbins, 1846-1945

                            ~ JESUS I COME ~


Out of my bondage, sorrow and night,
Jesus, 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 Thy self,
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 storms and into Thy calm,
Out of distress to jubilant psalm,
Jesus I come to Thee.


Out of unrest 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 light of Thy home,
Jesus, I come to Thee;


Out of the depths of ruin untold,
In to the peace of Thy sheltering fold,
Ever Thy glorious face to behold,
Jesus, I come to Thee.
