One sat alone beside the highway begging

One sat alone beside the highway begging,
  His eyes were blind, the light he could not see;
He clutched his rags and shivered in the shadows,
  Then Jesus came and bade his darkness flee.
  When Jesus comes the tempter's pow'r is broken;
  When Jesus comes the tears are wiped away.
He takes the gloom and fills the life with glory,
    For all is changed when Jesus comes to stay.
From home and friends the evil spirits drove him,
  Among the tombs he dwelt in misery;
He cut himself as demon pow'rs possessed him,
  Then Jesus came and set the captive free.
"Unclean! unclean!" the leper cried in torment,
  The deaf, the dumb, in helplessness stood near;
The fever raged, disease had gripped its victim,
  Then Jesus came and cast out every fear.
Their hearts were sad as in the tomb they laid him,
  For death had come and taken him away;
Their night was dark and bitter tears were falling,
  Then Jesus came and night was turned to day.
So men today have found the Savior able,
  They could not conquer passion, lust and sin;
Their broken hearts had left them sad and lonely,
  Then Jesus came and dwelt, Himself, within.

Great to hear this hymn played and the words so clearly written. The song came into my head as I woke up and I was glad to find this version. Thanks

I’ve had this song in my heart and mind several days but unsure of the words. I’m playing it as a prelude tomorrow at church.

This song is so beautiful, it depicts every area of life that Yahshua brought change to and is still changing.

HALLELUYAH what a power.

I read Isaiah 35. I was so encouraged. It says to me the fearful hearted not to be afraid, that God will surely come and save me. That when He comes, the blind will see, the deaf will hear, the lame will leap as a hart, the dumb will sing and rivers of water will spring forth in the desert and in the wilderness. Then I remembered this song and began to search for it. I'm surely blessed, I confess
