Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 An eager, restless crowd drew near,
And round the Savior pressed;
But one, with warm and loving faith,
His healing power confessed.

Refrain:
She had touched the hem of His garment,
Trusting with all her soul;
For every touch of the loving Jesus
Can make the wounded whole.

2 The multitude, with curious eyes,
Just gazed upon His face;
But she glanced up with hope, and love,
To feel His saving grace. [Refrain]

3 Oh, near to Christ the many came,
In that most favored hour!
But one stretched out the hand of faith,
And touched His healing power. [Refrain]

4 Of all who throng His courts today,
Who shall receive His Word?
Who shall reach forth with faith sincere,
To touch the healing Lord?

Refrain:
Come and touch the hem of His garment,
Trusting with all your soul;
For every touch of the loving Jesus
Can make the wounded whole.
