(see the scripture story in Matthew 9: 20-22)

The roadway was crowded with people

Who wanted a glimpse of THE MAN.

He had healed the sick and discouraged,

With the touch of His powerful hand.

In the crowd was a timid, ill woman;

She had spent all her money in vain,

To find healing for her painful affliction;

And recover her lost health once again.

Now she reaches her hand as He passes;

Her hope was to tap His great power.

But the Savior soon knew of her action.

‘twas her faith which brought healing that hour!

Why not reach out your hand to the Master?

He is near you each step of your way.

Just have faith in His power to cleanse you;

He’ll respond and bring healing today!
