1 The beggar sat blind by the wayside road,
Till Jesus came along, came along that way;
And then he rejoiced in the pow'r of God,
When Jesus came along that way.

Chorus:
My life was all darkened by guilt and sin,
Till Jesus came along, came along my way;
But now 'tis all brightness and peace within,
Since Jesus came along my way.

2 One word from the Master, his eyes gave sight,
When Jesus came along, came along that way;
And faith is his word fill'd his heart with light,
When Jesus cane along that way. [Chorus]

3 I heard the sweet sound of the angel throng,
When Jesus came along, came along my way;
As gladly they sang the redemption song,
When Jesus came along that way. [Chorus]

4 Oh, come to the Saviour; be healed of sin,
Today he comes along, comes along your way;
The sinner cries out, and the light breaks in,
When Jesus comes along that way. [Chorus]
