Scripture: Mark 7:24-37

British Methodist pastor and hymn writer Andrew Pratt has written this hymn, based on the healing of the Syrophoenician woman and the fact that God's love is available to all people. It is especially appropriate for the Gospel reading on the 15th Sunday after Pentecost (Mark 7:24-37), but also for general use.
