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.

Proposed Stanza 6

I urge all men, in all places to know him

This man of nazareth, the life of GOD

Who took away the sin of this perverse world

That all may live in Love and Peace and Joy

My Christian life got rooted singing this songs. The lyrics are so comforting, so apt, taking you through the Bible: Blind Bartimaeus healing, the Gadarene demonic, the healing of lepers, and all manner of diseases, man's inability, God's awesome ability to heal, to transform our gloomy situations. Bringing His glory upon our lives when He comes. Thank you Jesus. Hallelujah! ๐Ÿ™Œ

This song was going around in my head for weeks. I could only remember part of the melody and a few words โ€œWhen Jesus comes, the tempers power is broken, when Jesus comes all tears are washed awayโ€. So I googled the few words and up comes the song, amazing! ... Now I am sitting next to my wife who we just brought back from the hospital, itโ€™s so good to have her back. The song is such a comfort to me. โ€œWhen Jesus comes the tempter has to flee, thank you Jesusโ€. ...
