Then Jesus Came

(G) One sat alone beside the highway (Am) begging 
His eyes were (D) blind, the Light he could not (G) see 
He clutched his (Eb) rags and shivered in the (F) shadows 
Then Jesus (D) came and bid the darkness (G) flee

Chorus: 
When Jesus (D) comes the tempter's power is (G) broken 
When Jesus (D) comes, all tears are wiped a(G)way 
He takes the (G) gloom and (G7) fills my heart with (C) glory 
When Jesus (G) comes, the (D) darkness flees a(G)way 

From home and friends the evil spirits drove him
Among the tombs he dwelt in misery
He cut himself as demon powers possessed him
Then Jesus came and set the captive free

Chorus

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.

Then Jesus Came

1. 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.

Chorus:
      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.


      Among the tombs he dwelt in misery;
      He cut himself as demon pow'rs possessed him,
      Then Jesus came, and set the captive free.

3. "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 ev'ry fear.

4. So men today have found the Saviour 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.
