Posted:  23 Feb 2008 18:30
Looking for the words to a song that goes kinda like:

If I could just touch, the hem of His garment,
If I could just touch, some part of His clothes,
I know I'd be healed, my sins all forgiven,
If I could just touch Him, I know I'd be whole

Hope someone knows it.  thanks.

A woman one day tried many physcians
But daily grew worse in the Bible we're told
But when she had heard, she came to Jesus
And she found what she needed for her body and soul

Chorus: If I could just touch the hem of His garment
If I could just touch some part of His clothes
I know I'd be healed, my sins are forgiven
If I could just touch Him, I know I'd be whole


Blind Bartimus sat by the wayside begging
Nobody to help him down life's weary way
Then Jesus passed by and He heard His sad crying
He reached down His hand and He healed Him that day

One day I sat by the wayside begging
Nobody to help me down life's weary way
Then Jesus came by and He heard my sad crying
He reached down His hand and He saved me that day


Hope this is what you're looking for...God Bless!!

BTW: My Bible does not mention a "Bartimus".  {Luke 1:35 - 43 tells about the healing~ (King James Version) Therefore, I changed the words to "A blind man sat by the wayside begging..."}

Actually, your Bible does mention a "Bartimaeus" See Mark 10:46-52.

God bless,
Steve

Thanks in advance!

The lyrics I have, all but verse 3, are a little different. There is a women that has been singing this song for more than forty years and I had to play for her one Sunday at church and that's how I got them. Didn't know if anybody had heard these are not but thought I would help out. God Bless!

Verse: 1
A woman one day, tried many physicians,
her trouble grew worse, in the bible we’re told,
one day when she heard, she came to Jesus,
and found what she needed for body and soul.

Chorus:
If I could just touch, the hem of his garment,
if I could just touch, some part of his clothes,
I know I’d be healed, my sins all forgiven,
if I could just touch him I know I’d be whole.

Verse: 2
Blind Bartimus set, by the wayside a begging,
nobody to help him on life’s weary way,
then Jesus came by, and he heard his crying,
he touched his blind eyes and he healed him that day.

I truly hope this helps someone!

Thanks for the lyrics to this song it has so much meaning to it. i would set side my mother bed and sing to her it would feel her heart so much.

It still get cold chills when i hear this song

I've heard this song my entire life and there is a verse about:

Nicodemus came to Jesus by night...
Posted:  25 Jul 2009 05:25
Nicodemus came to Jesus by night,
His eyes were blinded to the things that were right.
He could not understand how a man when he's old
Could be born of God's Spirit, have life for his soul.

This is a very beautiful song.  A man at my church sang it last night.  I think that anyone that wants to sing it in God's house is welcome to do so since HE owns the rights to everything we have and gave the writer/composer the gift to write it.  As long as it is not being recorded and sold, and passed off as one's own work, then plagiarism is not an issue.  The only use of this song should be to glorify God Almighty!  Thanks to those who provided the various lyrics. 

Blessings to all!!!

If I Could Just Touch The Hem Of His Garment

Verse: 1
A woman one day, tried many physicians,
her trouble grew worse, in the bible we’re told,
one day when she heard, she came to Jesus,
and found what she needed for body and soul.

Chorus:
If I could just touch, the hem of his garment,
if I could just touch, some part of his clothes,
I know I’d be healed, my sins all forgiven,
if I could just touch him I know I’d be whole.

Verse: 2
Blind Bartimus set, by the wayside a begging,
nobody to help him, on life’s weary way,
then Jesus came by, and he heard his crying,
he touched his blind eyes and he healed him that day.

Verse: 3
Nicodemus came to, see Jesus by night,
his eyes were so blinded to the things that were right,
he could not see how, that a man when he's old,
could be born again and have life for his soul.

Verse: 4
One day as I sat, by the wayside a begging,
nobody to help me, down life's weary way,
then Jesus came by, and he heard my crying,
he reached down his hand and he saved me that day.
