When I saw Him from a distance,
I ran to follow and go after Him
and I believed all that I needed
was just a touch of His hem.
For years I have been shunned,
and turned away by those around me
so I hid myself in the crowd
and prayed my shame He wouldn't see.
As He passed me by I reached down,
and took from Him, my cure
for this man that they call Jesus
I knew would heal, if my faith was pure.
He stopped and called me His daughter,
when my belief in Him I revealed
and from that very moment
from my disease I was healed.
He bid to me to go in good comfort,
saying my faith had made me whole
and I believe that when I touched His hem
He imparted His favor onto my very soul.
There is a moral to my story,
never be too ashamed of your illness or sin
for Jesus still cures and heals our weaknesses
if you just let Him touch you - from within!
"And, behold, a woman, which was diseased
with an issue of blood twelve years, came
behind him, and touched the hem of his
garment: For she said within herself, If I
may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
But Jesus turned him about, and when he
saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good
comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.
And the woman was made whole from that
