Because she knew that Jesus was distinctive

The woman broke the flask of alabaster

And with a gesture lovingly instinctive

Poured out the precious nard upon the Master.

Because His glory passed their comprehension

Since they embraced an older dispensation

The woman's tender deed evoked dissension

From even those selected from the nation.

Because her action proved she apprehended

The way He went and answered His affection

He spoke as her Defender and commended

Her deed as right for constant recollection.

Lord, help us in our deeds as we aspire

To answer to Thyself and Thy desire!
