The Hem of His Garment

Verse 1:
She only touch’d the hem of His garment
As to His side she stole,
Amid the crowd that gather’d around Him,
And straightway she was whole.

Refrain:
Oh, touch the hem of His garment
And thou, too, shalt be free;
His saving pow’r this very hour
Shall give new life to thee.

Verse 2:
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.

Verse 3:
He turn’d with “Daughter, be of good comfort,
Thy faith hath made thee whole;”
And peace that passeth all understanding
With gladness filled her soul.

G.F.R./Geo. F. Root
