Behold, a woman from the city
came to the place where Jesus ate,
brought a box of precious ointment
with her tears the woman washed his feet,
weeping as the Savior ate.
Behold, the woman kissed and washed him,
drying him with her lovely hair,
shocking those who sat with Jesus
even though they saw the woman's tears,
"Does not Jesus know of her?"
Then he rebuked the pious Simon,
"Tell me, my friend, who would love more,
one who had been much forgiven
or the one whose sins were small and few?
Who would weep the bitt'rest tear?
"Behold, the woman is repentant.
See how she gives her finest oil,
for she has been much forgiven."
Then he said unto the woman, "Go,
go your faith has made you whole."
