Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.55

First Line: She only touched the hem of His

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.
Oh, touch the hem of His garment !
And thou, too, shalt be free ;
His saving power this very hour
Shall give new life to thee !

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.

3 He turned with Daughter, be of good comfort,
Thy faith hath made thee whole !
And peace that passeth all under-standing
With gladness filled her soul.
