Representative Text

1 Only a touch! My Saviour’s hand
A wondrous change has wrought,
And to my needy, sinful soul,
Has richest blessing brought.

Only a touch! Only a touch!
It brought me life and healing;
Only a touch! A tender touch,
His loving heart, revealing.

2 Only a touch! My sightless eyes
Beheld His smiling face;
Only a touch! My deafened ears
Could hear His words of grace. [Refrain]

3 Only a touch! A sweet “Fear not,”
When I was sore afraid,
Even on me His own right hand,
Most tenderly was laid. [Refrain]

4 Only a touch! It thrills me yet,
Nor will it pass away;
The pierced hand which once I felt,
Is on me still today. [Refrain]

5 Only a touch! It is for you,
That touch of living pow’r,
The outstretch’d hand of Christ the Lord,
Is her this very hour. [Refrain]
