A Woman

By Ellie Holcomb and Amy Grant

I could never speak it
But I didn’t quit when they called me heretic
They said I was too dangerous
So I stood with all the women at a distance
But once my name crossed His lips
How could I keep quiet
He is not ashamed to be seen with me beside Him
Mhmm I have seen the Lord
I will speak of Him
And nobody could talk me out of it
I have seen the Lord
And my Lord’s seen me
Oh He said my name
And told me
Go and speak
Of what you’ve seen How could I not speak it?
That You didn’t quit when they called You heretic
Mhmm
They said it was too scandalous
For You to come so close to me
But You still did it
MhmmAnd once my named crossed His lips
How could I keep silent?
He is not ashamed to be
Seen with me beside Him Oh I have seen the Lord
I will speak of him
And nobody could talk me out of it
I have seen the Lord
And my Lord’s seen me
Oh, He said my name
And told me
Go and speak
Of what you’ve seen I will run and tell the story of
The world denied, stayed buried, but it is still alive
Spirt’s setting tongues on fire
All the Heaven’s singing glory, glory, glory
Trees are clapping, clapping, clapping
Rocks are shouting, shouting, shouting
And then there’s me, a women And I will speak
Of what I’ve seen
I will speak (I will speak)
Of what I’ve seen (What I’ve seen)
Go and speak (I will speak)
Of what you’ve seen (What I’ve seen)
Go and speak
Of what you’ve seen
Go and speak

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.
