She came to Jesus from outside the foldAuthor: Carolyn Winfrey Gillette
Published in 2 hymnals
She came to Jesus from outside the fold—
Canaanite woman! Persistent and bold!
Looking to Jesus, she wanted to see
One who would help her and set her child free.
Claiming a blessing, a touch of God's grace,
She knew God's love was not bounded by place.
Jesus, you listened, debated—then healed—
For in her asking, her faith was revealed.
God, you still bless those who seek you in prayer.
You welcome dreamers who faithfully dare.
In Christ, now risen, your mercy extends:
Those on the outside are welcomed as friends.
Bless by your Spirit this minister here
Who has served faithfully year after year--
Breaking down barriers, persistent and bold,
Leading your people back into your fold.
