Behold, the woman but a
Who knew Jesus was gathered there,
Brought fragrant oil to anoint His feet,
Loved Him much and graced Him with care.
Standing beside Jesus she knelt down,
At His feet and began to cry,
Her warm tears were dropping one by one,
Falling on top His feet to lie.
With her long tresses she wiped His feet,
As she washed them with all her tears,
She kissed and anointed them with oil,
Perfumed, costly and rare of years.
Humble and gracious was her worship,
Her heart being sad and lonely,
She loved Jesus and sought forgiveness,
From Him, her honored Lord only.
How she poured all her love on Jesus,
She gave her heart and welcomed in,
Her Lord she loved much, she gave her all,
And Jesus felt, forgiving sin.
There were those who said who is this man,
Who forgives, but this woman knew,
Jesus was Lord and her faith saved her,
A sinful wasted life born new.
Behold, the woman but a sinner,
Left in peace, no more a disgrace,
But a freshly cleansed heart and new life,
In Jesus, she was saved by grace.
