She only touched the hem of His garmentAs to His side she stole,Amid the crowd that gathered around Him,And straightway she was whole.
Oh, touch the hem of His garment!And thou, too, shalt be free!His saving power this very hourShall give new life to thee!
She came in fear and trembling before Him,She knew her Lord had come;She felt that from Him virtue had healed her,The mighty deed was done.
He turned with “Daughter, be of good comfort,Thy faith hath made thee whole!”And peace that passeth all understandingWith gladness filled her soul.
Just one touch as He moves along,Pushed and pressed by the jostling throng,Just one touch and the weak was strong,Cured by the Healer divine.
Just one touch as He passes by,He will list to the faintest cry,Come and be saved while the Lord is nigh,Christ is the Healer divine.
Just one touch and He makes me whole,Speaks sweet peace to my sin sick soul,At His feet all my burdens roll,Cured by the Healer divine.
Jut one touch! and the work is done,I am saved by the blessèd Son,I will sing while the ages run,Cured by the Healer divine.
Just one touch! and He turns to me,Oh, the love in His eyes I see!I am His, for He hears my plea,Cured by the Healer divine.
Just one touch! by His mighty powerHe can heal thee this blessèd hour,Thou canst hear though the tempests lower,Cured by the Healer divine.
Crowds are behind Thee, crowds are before,Life in a single moment Thou canst restore.Only to touch Thee, spotless and pure,Only to touch Thy garment, faith brings the cure.
Only Thy garment’s hem, Lord, I implore;Only Thy garment’s hem life will restore;Only a touch will bring joy to my soul;Let me but touch Thy garment, I shall be whole.
Only to touch Thee, Savior, I know,Peace to my troubled spirit Thou wilt bestow;Only to touch Thee, this is my prayer,Longer my heavy burden I cannot bear.
Lord, I am sinful, Thou undefiled,Yet dost Thou love and even call me Thy child;Great is Thy mercy, wondrous to me;Lord, ’tis my faith that saves me, glory to Thee!
