Representative Text

1 A touch from the hand of Jesus,
Dear hand, nail-pierced for me;
A touch from the hand of Jesus;
Just now he passes by.

Refrain:
O blessed touch of the Father’s Son,
Forgiving touch for the penitent one;
Whose hand is ne’er outstretched in vain,
Touching dead hearts to life again.

2 A touch from the hand of Jesus,
Who hears each moan and sigh;
A touch from the hand of Jesus;
Just now he passes by. [Refrain]

3 A touch from the hand of Jesus
Will cool thy fevered brow;
A touch from the hand of Jesus
Will make thee whole just now. [Refrain]

4 A touch from the hand of Jesus,
O soul why still delay?
A touch from the hand of Jesus
Will wash thy guilt away. [Refrain]
