(Alt. audio): Chapter: 8

     40 And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him. 41 And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus’ feet, and besought him that he would come into his house: 42 For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him. 43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, 44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. 45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace. 49 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master. 50 But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole. 51 And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. 52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth. 53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. 54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise. 55 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat. 56 And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 396:
Oh, For a Faith That Will Not Shrink

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. Oh, for a faith that will not shrink 
Tho’ pressed by many a foe; 
That will not tremble on the brink 
Of poverty or woe; 

2. That will not murmur nor complain 
Beneath the chast’ning rod, 
But in the hour of grief or pain 
Can lean upon its God; 

3. A faith that shines more bright and clear 
When tempests rage without; 
That, when in danger, knows no fear, 
In darkness feels no doubt; 

4. That bears unmoved the world’s dread frown 
Nor heeds its scornful smile; 
That sin’s wild ocean cannot drown 
Nor Satan’s arts beguile; 

5. A faith that keeps the narrow way 
Till life’s last spark is fled 
And with a pure and heavenly ray 
Lights up the dying bed. 

6. Lord give us such a faith as this; 
And then, whate’er may come, 
We’ll taste e’en now the hallowed bliss 
Of an eternal home.
