Representative Text

1. Savior, I by faith am touching
Thee, the source of every good;
Virtue now, by faith am claiming,
Thro’ the cleansing of Thy blood.

Touching Thee, new life is glowing,
By Thy Spirit’s burning flame;
Cleansing, purging, spirit filling,
Glory to Thy holy name!

2. Touching Thee in faith, I promise,
By Thine own unfailing aid,
Prompt obedience, instant service,
When and where it should be paid. [Refrain]

3. Touching now Thine outstretched scepter,
O most mighty King of kings;
Of Thy fullness now receiving,
High I mount on eagle wings. [Refrain]

4. Grace and virtue, strength and wisdom,
All my need, by Thee supplied,
Keep me touching, keep me claiming,
Keep me ever at Thy side. [Refrain]
