The Garment

Carolyn Kardinal  •  Digital Sheet Music


This solo is based on the healing of the woman who reached out and touched the hem of Jesus’ garment with the sweet and precious message, “Thy faith hath made thee whole.” This beautiful setting, alternating a delicate minor accompaniment with strong major harmonies perfectly support the lovely melody and will inspire any congregation.

The Garment
Music and Lyrics by C. Kardinal

She humbly cam behind Him, jostled by the pressing mass.
She knew if she could touch Him, her healing would come to pass.

Desperately she reached out to touch the garment’s hem,
To partake of the anointing of Christ whom God had sent.

As her hand reached out and brushed the cloth, Jesus perceived her
soul, And he gently spoke, “Be of good comfort. Thy faith hath made thee

Tears of relief and joy flowed from her grateful eyes.
In that instant she was healed, for Truth could not be disguised!

She went her way rejoicing, no longer enslaved, but free.
Just as the blind man had been healed, now she, too, could see.

From this pilgrim’s story comes hope for all who are oppressed.
If we may but touch the garment of Truth, we, too, shall be blessed.
