My Spin

(Just my opinion. Give us yours!)

"He Touched Me" is the title song to Elvis' third and final gospel album, one which would garner him his second grammy! As with most of his gospel music, Elvis sings this hymn with conviction, and vocally, especially on that final note, he truly delivers the goods!

Other Spins

(What did the critics and fans say?)

"He Touched Me", the title track of the religious album, had doubtless been in Presley's mind for a long time. It is the kind of hymn he had known from his youth, and the performance is effective and moving.

Robert Matthew-Walker, Elvis Presley: A Study in Music, 1979

"He Touched Me" Lyrics and Downloads

Shackled by a heavy burden
'Neath a load of guilt and shame
Then the hand of Jesus touched me
And now I am no longer the same

For He touched me, He touched me
And oh what a joy that floods my soul
Something happened and now I know
He touched me and made me whole

Oh since I met this blessed Savior
And since he cleansed and made me whole
Oh I will never cease, never cease to praise Him
I'll shout it while eternity rolls

Oh He touched me, oh He touched me
And oh what a joy that floods my soul
Something happened and now I know
He touched me and made me whole
