Human Touch

Isolation is the killer

So always stay in touch

For human touch is tenderness

It can do so much


A handshake is a human touch

Bringing friendship warm

A mother’s embrace for her baby

Protects from all alarm


The human word is spoken

To join your life to mine

Letter phone or even text

Means we do not pine


The touch of Jesus always

Brings healing in its wake

Morning prayer and evening prayer

Healing for my sake


Don’t lose touch with people

Let them share your day

Think of them and pray for them

When they are far away


The sick and the dying

Need the human touch

Hold their hand support them

So little yet so much
