The Hem of His Garment
Refrain  [1]  [2]  [3] 
Contemporary
Oh, touch the hem of His garment
And thou, too, shall be free;
His saving power this very hour
Shall give new life to thee.
She only touched the hem of His garment
As to His side she stole,
Amid the crowd that gathered around Him,
And straightway she was whole.
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 understanding
With gladness filled her soul.

She only touched the hem of His garment
As to His side she stole,
Amid the crowd that gathered around Him,
And straightway she was whole.

Refrain
Oh, touch the hem of His garment
And thou, too, shall be free;
His saving power this very hour
Shall 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 understanding
With gladness filled her soul.
