Just Touch the Hem of His Garment (A Song of Healing)

Just Touch the Hem of His GarmentWhen you touch the hem of His garment
The release of healing will flow
But in order for this to happen
You must be humbled by getting down low

Reaching out, reaching out for the Saviour
Stretch further than you’ve ever reached before
For He is the only One worthy
The only One who can ever restore

Don’t worry about verbal conflicts
Don’t worry about envy or strife
It’s Jesus, sweet Jesus you’re reaching for
The only One who can ever give life

The touch, the touch … surrendered
And pure love, it bathes like a prism
He pours healing, pure healing inside of you
And all weakness is gone through His wisdom

Just touch the hem of His garment
His garment just touch and see
The wonders that’ll flow through you
Sweet healing for eternity

“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind Him, and touched the hem of His garment:
For she said within herself, If I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole.
But Jesus turned him about, and when He saw her, He said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.” Matthew 9:20-22 KJV

  1. Imagine that for years this poor woman had been denied the intimacies of touch and of worship. Get out of here, Unclean! And she ventures forth to have Jesus do the unmentionable. But upon His touching she is no longer afflicted. It was one of those do-or-die happenings.


    1. Thanks Doug … even though there would have been so much hindrance surrounding her on her way to touch His hem and receive healing and salvation, the Lord would have cleared the path for her, covered her, protected her and hedged her in His love, His mercy, His grace … for this was His time for her miracle and nothing or no-one would be able to stop it.
