If I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole.@Matthew 9:21

T. N. Eaton, in Songs of the Peacemaker (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: J. W. Van de Venter & Company, 1894), number 29.

P. Keil, Jr. (🔊 pdf nwc).

Earth’s physicians know not to heal thee,
Thou hast tried them again and again;
Human agencies ne’er can cleanse thee,
Haste to come to the Savior of men.

Refrain

O touch but the hem of His garment,
And virtue shall come out to thee;
So shalt thou be saved in a moment,
O sinner, but touch Him and see.

This Physician hath power to heal thee,
Men have tried Him again and again;
You need nothing but just to touch Him,
Haste to come to this Savior of men.

Refrain

They must die who refuse to trust Him,
There is no other healing for thee;
They shall certainly live who touch Him,
Haste to come to the Savior and see.

Refrain
