The Hem of his Garment

Mark 5:21-43


The finger of faith connected

And suddenly she was well

Amid that pressing thronging crowd

Her story she had to tell

So many quacks and doctors

All her money spent

Now the hem of his garment

Has sealed her heart’s content


Your faith has saved you Jesus says

Time and time again

He is not a one armed bandit

Or a convenient slot machine

He welcomes all who come to him

One thing asks in return

This is a relationship

Your faith in me I yearn


This act of trust self-giving

Adherence to the Lord

This is what he asks of us

When listening to his word

Come to me all you who labour

I will give you rest

This no one-way effort

You must give your best
