16. When Jesus Came Our Way (An Experience Meeting at Capernaum)

[Blind Man]
1 A beggar blind, the truth I learned,
When Jesus came my way;
He touched mine eyes, my sight returned,
I praise His name to-day.

Refrain:
Poor sinners, we had waited long,
Till Jesus came our way;
He saved our souls, we sing the song
Of triumph day by day.

[A Deaf Mute]
2 Both deaf and dumb—no sound I heard,
When Jesus came my way;
He pitied me and spake the word,
I hear and sing to-day. [Refrain]

[A Demoniac]
3 I was insane 'neath satan's yoke,
When Jesus came my way;
The Master's hand my bondage broke,
I stand here free today. [Refrain]

[One of the 5,000]
4 Hungry and faint I touched His feet,
When Jesus came my way;
He gave me Heaven's bread to eat,
I know His strength to-day. [Refrain]

[The Paralytic]
5 With palsy I was trembling long,
When Jesus came my way,
He found me weak, He made me strong,
I, too, rejoice to-day. [Refrain]

[A Leper]
6 A leprous man—outcast and sad,
When Jesus came my way;
He gave me health and made me glad,
I'm cleansed from sin to-day. [Refrain]

[Widow's Son from Nain]
7 A dead son I was borne by men,
When Jesus came my way;
He stopped the bier, I live again,
I now His will obey. [Refrain]

[All]
8 We all were lost in sin and shame,
When Jesus came our way;
He saved us! Bless His holy name,
His word we now obey. [Refrain]
