The Hem of His Garment (Hymn)

The Hem of His Garment
George Root (18??)

She only touched the hem of His garment
As to His side she stole,
Amid the crowd that gathered around Him,
And straightway she was whole.


Oh, touch the hem of His garment!
And thou, too, shalt be free!
His saving power this very hour
Shall give new life to thee!

She came in fear and trembling before Him,
She knew her Lord had come;
She felt that from Him virtue had healed her,
The mighty deed was done.


He turned with “Daughter, be of good comfort,
Thy faith hath made thee whole!”
And peace that passeth all understanding
With gladness filled her soul.


This is one of my favorite stories from the Bible.  I came across this hymn the other day and I love the thought it contains.  If we could but touch the hem of His garment, we would be made whole.  We simply need to get to the Saviour.  Whatever our problem in life, He can solve it.  Jesus is everything and we need to constantly be going to Him.
