This is one of my favorite hymns! I hope you all enjoy it as well. I may have posted it before, but I am posting it again because it keeps going through my head. We sang this at RUF the week that my Grandmother died. I was crying during the last verse. It had never hit me before that we are free from the fear and dread of the tomb. We leave this world and we are ever before his glorious face. How wonderful is that? That being said, the third verse is the one that I relate to the most. It is easy to forget that God has given you the gifts that you have. Well, maybe not forget, but take for granted... Anyhow, I love this song. I hope to have you all hear all these great hymns sometime. They are wonderful old pieces of music.

Jesus, I Come

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 wanting 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 into 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 forever 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.

Oh and Mom, if you need another Christmas present, I want the Igrace V cd.
You can buy it here.
That is the fifth cd. It is great!
Combo number three looks really awesome as well, but that could wait for my birthday. Or buy it now and give me the other three cds for my birthday and the fifth one for Christmas. :D
Love love love.
You can even listen to some of it there.
