Just A Touch of His Hem

by Deborah Ann Belka
(Blaine, WA, USA)

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!


1 Peter 5:6-7

Matthew 9:20-22

"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 hour. "
