You, Jesus Liberated

Touch the hem of My garment
I'm still making whole
Your faith reaching to Me
Love responding, overwhelming

Love striped, bleeding, cross-confined
Entombed, then bursting free
Love stronger than grave cloths
Life-giving Agape arose forevermore

Now is your time, loosed
In bondage not again
Savior's footsteps pressing close
To resurrect the Son-filled child.

Matthew 9:19-21
New King James Version (NKJV)
19 So Jesus arose and followed him, and so did His disciples.
20 And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment.21 For she said to herself, “If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.”

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.

John 20:5-7
New King James Version (NKJV)
And he, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself.
