Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Lord, I Want You To Touch Me

Full Text

Refrain:
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]
