Tune: [Some folks want treasures of silver and gold]
Published in 1 hymnal
Lord, I want you to touch me,
Touch me with Thy holy love.
Lord, come down and touch me.
Come down from heaven above.
Lord, reach out and touch me,
Reach out and touch me within,
Lord, let the goodness touch me,
Thy touch will cleanse me from sin.
1 Some folks want treasures of silver and gold,
Some want to reign with powers untold;
But in my life, all that I can say,
Lord, be my guide and have thine own way. [Refrain]
2 Teach me to love and teach me to pray,
Grant me a light to shine day by day;
Just to abide where joys never cease
Will be great joy, such comfort and ease. [Refrain]
