New Hymn Lyrics for Luke 8:42b-48

Luke 8:42b-48

As Jesus went, the people pressed around him.  And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and though she had spent all her living on physicians, she could not be healed by anyone.  She came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment, and immediately her discharge of blood ceased.   And Jesus said, “Who was it that touched me?” When all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds surround you and are pressing in on you!”  But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I perceive that power has gone out from me.”  And when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling, and falling down before him declared in the presence of all the people why she had touched him, and how she had been immediately healed.  And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.”

O The Touch of Jesus

Suggested tune: WEM IN LEIDGENSTAGEN. Meter: 6565. Based on Luke 8:42b-48.  Words: William Weber, 2015.

O the touch of Jesus,
healing life it gives.
Faith takes hold of Jesus,
such will truly live.

Jesus has all power,
all authority.
All who come believing,
will depart with peace.

Fall before the Savior,
worship Him as Lord.
Tell what He's done for you,
how He has restored.

Then stay near to Jesus,
through His Word and meal.
Let His words instruct you,
and His Supper heal.

Jesus, You are risen,
bodily You dwell.
Food and drink please give us,
this will keep us well.

Raise our hearts to Jesus,
Father, hear our prayer.
By the Spirit lift us,
grant us healing there.
