Today’s Gospel reading

Mark 5:24-34

So Jesus went with him, and a great multitude followed Him and thronged Him. Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.” Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?'” And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”

“Touch The Hem Of His Garment”

Southern Spiritual

Oh, there was a woman in the Bible days,
she had been sick, sick so very long
but she heard about Jesus was passing by,
so she joined the gathering throng
and while she was pushing her way through,
someone ask her: ‘What are you trying to do?’

She said:
‘if I could just touch the hem of His garment
I know I’ll be made whole’

She cried:
‘Oh Lord, Oh Lord and Oh Lord, Oh Lord’
Said :
‘if I could just touch the hem of His garment
I know I’ll be made whole’

Oh, She spent her money here and there
until she had no, had no more to spare,
the doctors, they’d done all they could
but their medicine would do no good.
When she touched Him The Saviour didn’t see
but still He turned around and cried
‘Somebody touched me’

She said:
‘It was I who just wanna touch the hem of Your garment,
I know I’ll be made whole right now’

She stood there crying:
‘Oh Lord, Oh Lord and Oh Lord, Oh Lord’

Said:
‘If I could just touch the hem of His garment,
I know I’ll made whole right now’
