"Then Jesus Came" by Oswald J.Smith

Looking for the words to the song "Then Jesus Came" written by Oswald J. Smith. I believe I have the chorus but I'd like all the words of the song.

If I recall it began with:
"One sat alone beside the highway begging
His eyes were blind, ...............he could not see

Chorus:
"When Jesus comes the tempter's power 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."
........................................................................

Thank you for any help with this.

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.

2. 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.

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.

Love it. Attended his church & listened to his preaching on radio as a child. Loved the family.

I have words to another verse:
WHEN JESUS COMES (1940) Key: C 4/4
Words: Oswald Smith Music: Homer Rodeheaver

4. 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.
