A touch will make you whole

Representative Text

1 Tho’ your sins may be as crimson, Christ will wash them white as snow,
If you touch but his garments’ hem;
You have only to believe him and the cleansing stream will flow,
If you touch but his garments’ hem.

Trusting only in his name,
Yield to Christ your sinful soul;
Oh, believe him, and receive him,
And a touch will make you whole.

2 There is healing, there is pardon, there is life and peace for you,
If you touch but his garments’ hem;
Ev’ry evil in your spirit, ev’ry passion he’ll subdue,
If you touch but his garments’ hem. [Refrain]

3 “Come,” his gentle voice is pleading, he will bless you ere you go,
If you touch but his garments’ hem;
Perfect pardon and redemption will his precious love bestow,
If you touch but his garments’ hem. [Refrain]
