Representative Text

1 She only touched the hem of the garment that he wore;
Just a little touch in faith did perfect health restore.
The virtue of the Lord floweth free to ev’ry soul,
Who comes to him in simple faith to be made whole.

Refrain:
Just a touch of Jesus! Just a touch of Jesus!
Just a touch that makes the sinner whole;
Just a touch of Jesus! Just a touch of Jesus!
Just a little touch that saves the soul!

2 In gloom and want and darkness e’er longing for the day,
Thus the blind of Jericho sat begging by the way;
But Jesus passing by heard their eager, earnest cries,
And spoke the wondrous word that opened wide their eyes. [Refrain]

3 Oh, weary, burdened soul, to the Savior quickly go;
Tho’ your sins be scarlet, they shall be as white as snow,
Now go with all your sorrow, yes, go with all your sin,
For Jesus’ touch is life and joy and peace within. [Refrain]
