Could this perhaps be the hymn you're requesting?

When Jesus Comes

Words by Oswald Smith,
Music by Homer Rodeheaver
© 1940

Matthew 15:30
"And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those
that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast
them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them."




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 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.

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
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.

"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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thanks.
I was a song leader in a little church in New Mexico in 1958 and sang this song, and the music never left me, but I forgot most of the words. Thanks again

wow that is a great song. I heard it at my church about 15 years ago, then i fell into the world and got locked up went to jail. To my suprise i ended up where there was some christians. We would have a chance to have service every night in the showers after everyone had cleared out. They asked if anyone had any other songs to share and that song had never left me as well. So that became one of the songs we sang.It had always stuck in my head so i was able to share it. Hopefully they are still singing it. Praise GOD for that song. it's touching and comforting

Just wanted to drop a note to mention that many people asked me for sheet music to this song a while back, and I found it in an old campfire songbook. The music and lyrics can be found at: http://www.adventrecovery.org/jesus_came.jpg -- be blessed and enjoy!

try hymnal.net for the music. You get the first verse played very clearly. First heard this at a Billy Graham rally (?) or was it Youth for Christ (?) in Birmingham town hall - UK in mid 1950s. Never forgotten it. Barrie
