Please see the Dutch version Die dag.


A woman:

Now that I look back again,
I can see what I could not then:
My whole life, in some hidden way,
has come together on that day.
Who ever could have told me
He still is in all I see;
have foretold me,
that this one encounter would be
the thing still defining me?

Uninvited I arrived
at his table, right by his side,
took my ointment, costly and sweet,
and poured it on his head and feet.
This was his coronation:
My teacher, my friend, my king!
My donation:
I wanted, in so many ways,
to show he deserved my praise.

All his friends called out, enraged:
'Madness! Money lost! Such a waste!'
He said: 'Let her! This ointment makes
my body ready for the grave.'
And he said: 'Pay attention:
Wherever my news is brought,
she'll be mentioned:
the only one here who has caught
the meaning of what I've taught.'

Dumb I stood, nailed to the ground.
What I'd meant, had been turned around.
Signs of love, in one single breath,
were now a symbol of his death.
Who ever could have told me,
how those are in fact the same;
have foretold me,
that he who I miss every day
will always be on my way?

Who ever could have told me,
that 'dead' is not 'gone away',
have foretold me,
that he who I miss every day
is here in my life to stay?

Bible passage

And when Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, a woman came to Him having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil, and she poured it on His head as He sat at the table.

But when His disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, "Why this waste? For this fragrant oil might have been sold for much and given to the poor."

But when Jesus was aware of it, He said to them, "Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a good work for Me. For you have the poor with you always, but Me you do not have always.

For in pouring this fragrant oil on My body, she did it for My burial.

Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her."
