Out of the depths of ruin untold, Jesus I come

Been spinning this song on repeat lately. :)

Looking at the last year, I could never regret the times I responded this way to grace's draw, as costly as they seemed at the time... bids me come and die, and find that I may truly live. But always, always, I've been drawn into more freedom and more life than I could have chosen or hoarded for myself.

Jesus I come
into Thy freedom, gladness and light
out of my sickness
into Thy health
out of my wanting
into Thy wealth
out of my sin
into Thyself
run, don't walk!
into the glorious gain of Thy cross
out of earth's sorrows
into Thy balm
into Thy calm
out of distress
crawl if you need to,
or have friends carry you
into Thy blessed will to abide
out of myself
to dwell in Thy love
out of despair 
into raptures above
out of the fear and dread of the tomb
into the joy and light of Thy home
out of the depths of ruin untold
into the peace of Thy sheltering fold

just come. rest. dance.
ever Thy glorious face to behold
