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 Thy self ; Jesus I come to Thee.
Out of my shameful failure and loss, Jesus I come, Jesus I come.
Into Thy glorious gain of Thy cross, Jesus I come to Thee.
Out of earth's sorrows, into Thy balm ;
Out of life's storm and into they calm ;
Out of distress to jubilant psalm , Jesus I come to Thee.
Out of the fear and death 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 !
- W.T. Sleeper.
This song was just so comforting for us, knowing that some day, your dad wont have to suffer any more, and he will leave his sickness behind and enter into the health of our loving Jesus! All this pain is temporary! Some day he will be entering into the joy and light of Jesus' throne, and he wont have to worry about how he is going to get out of bed, or how he is going to eat that sandwich, or how he is going to take his next breath ! He will be resting in the Peace of Jesus' sheltering fold! Really though, this is something we can all look forward to! Leaving earth's sorrows and fear of death and getting out of the depths of ruin and just entering into Jesus Himself!
