Then Sings My Soul - He Touched Me


I had a hard time cho0sing a song for today. It's been a tough couple of weeks. I've spent lots of time revisiting old memories in these days since my mom's passing. And as tempting as it was to post a song like Precious Memories or Beyond the Sunset, I wanted something a little more contemporary.

This is a relatively new hymn, written by Bill & Gloria Gaither in 1963 - a mere 45 years old as opposed to a hundred or more! I remember lying on my parents' bed on Sunday afternoons and hearing this song open Billy Graham's radio show The Hour of Decision. I really love this version by the Gaither Vocal Band, and it brought tender tears as I watched them sing it.

Linda,

I'm so sorry about your Mom. Oh, so hard!

Great song!

My Mom loves the Gaithers and has gone to many of their concerts!

I'll be praying for you.

My Mother in law is a huge Gaither fan. I still love this song, and no one can sin it like the Gaithers. Their harmony is awesome! I love to hear a group of men harmonizing and singing to the Lord. Beautiful!

Oh I have always loved that song. I was born in 1963. It's nice to be put into the contemporary group!

How wonderful to know that your Mom is now made whole in every way in the Presence of her Saviour. How comforting for you to have Him touch you in those places made so tender and vulnerable by grief.
Beautiful song that takes me back. Thank you.

There is something about the songs of my past that make me realize that I really did get it. I got the healing power of Jesus Christ through songs like this..."something happened and now I know, He touched me and made me whole.". The fact that I still know all the words is even more defining for my young life in following Jesus. Thanks for this blessed song.
