Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Earth’s physicians know not to heal thee,
Thou hast tried them again and again;
Human agencies ne’er can cleanse thee,
Haste to come to the Savior of men.

O touch but the hem of His garment,
And virtue shall come out to thee;
So shalt thou be saved in a moment,
O sinner, but touch Him and see.

2 This Physician hath power to heal thee,
Men have tried Him again and again;
You need nothing but just to touch Him,
Haste to come to this Savior of men. [Refrain]

3 They must die who refuse to trust Him,
There is no other healing for thee;
They shall certainly live who touch Him,
Haste to come to the Savior and see. [Refrain]
