Faithful Little Dog

the children’s bread

I’ll not be shaken off, not I

My daughter writhes at home

And I have heard

Your healing power

The greatest ever known

Disciples bar me from your touch

No Jewish blood to show

But Son of David

Lord of life

I will not let you go.

A hopeful “dog”

That’s what you said

The household pet I’m sure

And crumbs that fall

From sacred feast

Will more than prove the cure.

So come now Jesus

Speak the word

And healing now translate

And end this Mother’s heaviness

My daughter’s sorry state.
