If Only I Could Touch The Hem Of His Garment Poem by Royston Allen

If Only I Could Touch The Hem Of His Garment



For many years I have sought to be healed.
Paid doctors' fees and to the priests appealed
But alas all my efforts were in vain
And I don't think I will get well again

But if I touch the hem of His garment
It will only take the briefest moment.
With this crowd of people no-one would see
Just one touch would be enough to heal me.

The people were jostling around so much
so there, unnoticed I reached out to touch.
Then it happened. I felt the healing stream
enter me, fulfilling my wildest dream.

There was no need to speak or say a word
I had reached out in faith and touched the Lord
For even in the crowded street that day
Jesus had healed me as He passed my way

I praise My God and of His Glory sing
He's my Saviour and my Lord and King
True healing of body and soul took place
when I came to Jesus by God's grace

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Matthew 9: 20-22
20 And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment.21 For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well." 22 But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, "Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour.

I praise My God and of His Glory sing He's my Saviour and my Lord and King. Really beautiful verses with heart toughing imagery. Nicely presented.
