Lord, I Would Touch You!

The crowds surround You, Jesus,
With needs both great and small.
I simply have to touch You -
I need You most of all!

My burdens are so heavy,
My life is filled with pain;
If I come close enough to touch
I shall be whole again.

It's not MY touch that heals, Lord,
It's Your Almighty Power;
But I must keep close to You
Through every day and hour.

For You can heal the body
And lift the downcast soul,
Forgive the sin-sick spirit
And make completely whole.

My faith in You believing
And needing You so much,
I reach toward you, Jesus,
For YOUR restoring touch.
