Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

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.
