Let me Touch the Hem

Please add this worship song to your online church sermon, morning devotion, or evening quiet time.
Today’s song is “Let Me Touch the Hem” performed by Fred Hammond

“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 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 hour.”
Matthew 9: 20-22 (KJV)

“And wherever He went into villages, towns or countryside they placed the sick in the marketplaces. They begged Him to let them touch even the edge of His cloak, and all who touched it were healed.”
Mark 6:56 (NIV)

Today’s song, “Let me Touch the Hem,” performed by Fred Hammond, is a song that, I suspect, is unknown to most.  I will share with you today this worship song helped me through one of the most difficult seasons of my life.  If you are in need, emotionally, physically, or spiritually, I pray that this song will direct you to the perfect source of healing through Jesus Christ.

Both melody and words are simple, without fanfare, but powerful in truth.  With this simple act, of reaching for the hem of Christ’s garment, just as the woman with the issue of blood, we can be healed, forgiven, with new life.

As the song’s second stanza states, Jesus is available; do not miss this opportunity.  Today we may be reaching out for the first time; Jesus offers redemption.  Today we may be depleted emotionally or spiritually; Jesus will fill us.  Today we may need physical healing; Jesus is the great healer.  Jesus is available now, this very moment.
Let me touch the Hem of His Garment today.
He will make me whole.

In Christ,

Let me Touch the Hem

Let me touch the hem of his garment
Touch the hem of his garment
And I will be made whole
Let me touch the hem of his garment
Touch the hem of his garment
And I will be made whole

For the Lord is passing by
Yes the Lord is passing by
For the healing virtue just take home
For as he’s drawing nigh
Don’t let this moment pass you by
Heal your body, your SPIRIT and your soul

May we grow together in the love of Christ to reflect upon the mercies and blessings upon our lives, to feel the presence of God’s living Holy Spirit through worship to sing, pray, laugh, dance, cry, but mostly to praise our Lord and Father as we were indeed created2praise.
