Oh to touch his cloak

Oh, if I could only touch His cloak
And feel the rough fabric as it brushes past my skin
To know that for one brief moment in time
I was right there, standing close to Him

If I could reach out my arm to touch Him
Even if just with my finger tips
My whole life would be changed forever
As songs of gratitude leave my lips

His awesome power would fill my being
Like light shining in a darkened place
Revealing my hidden hurts, sorrows and pain
And replacing them with His healing grace

I donít need to see His face
Smiling down on the children dancing at his feet
I donít need to shuffle to get ahead
Of the people crowded around Him in the street

All I need is just to touch His cloak
Just one small contact with my King
And Iíll be cured of my pain forever
The rest of my life His praises to sing

Iíll close my eyes and block the world from my mind
As I stretch out my hand
Heíll know it when I touch Him
Heíll feel His power leave and Heíll understand

I donít mind if He keeps on walking
He doesnít need to stop and turn my way
Just one touch is all I ask from Him
Thereíll be nothing else, no words to say

More than that, would be the greatest gift
A blessing too awesome for me to bear
Just one touch Lord, just one touch
And for Him to know that I was there

Bronwyn, Very good. Most of us have thought the exact same thoughts. I am so glad we can still touch Him through His word and spirit and love found in His followers. Again, great poem! Sincerely, Dan Blankenship

Yes, what a great moment in one's life that would be. The good part is, we can touch Him, spiritually. Thomas
