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.


Woke up two mornings now with this song singing in my heart. I didn't know it had so many verses. What a blessed truth! Jesus is indeed Lord over all situations. He can do anything!!! I love Him because He first loved me.

Thanks for posting the words.



There is nothing like the Power of Jesus Christ of Nazareth He turn the impossible into POSSIBLE whenever Jesus Christ of Nazareth shows up MIRACLES SIGNS AND WONDERS happen.

I am so touched by this song I sing it often times for my devotion hymn



Oh the glory and power of Jesus. Nothing is too hard for the Lord.

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.
