Jesus, I Come

Representative Text

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 my self 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.

1 De mi tristeza y esclavitud,
vengo, Jesús, vengo, Jesús;
a tu alegría y a tu virtud,
vengo, Jesús, a ti.
De mi pobreza y enfermedad,
a tu salud y rica bondad;
a tu presencia de mi maldad,
vengo, Jesús, a ti.

2 De mi flaqueza y falta de luz,
vengo, Jesús, vengo, Jesús;
al eminente bien de tu cruz,
vengo, Jesús, a ti.
Del sufrimiento que es terrenal,
a ti, mi médico celestial,
para ser libre de todo mal,
vengo, Jesús, a ti.

3 De mi soberbia y ansiedad,
vengo, Jesús, vengo, Jesús;
para morar en tu voluntad,
vengo, Jesús, a ti.
De mi tristeza a tu gran amor,
a ti, Jesús, mi consolador,
para por siempre darte loor,
vengo, Jesús, a ti.

4 De ese terror que la tumba me da,
vengo, Jesús, vengo, Jesús;
a la brilllante luz de tu hogar,
vengo, Jesús, a ti.
De la indecible profundidad,
a tu redil de tranquilidad;
a ver tu faz por la eternidad,
vengo, Jesús, a ti.
