The Anointing Song

                 The Anointing

Verse 1 She bathed his feet with her tears

she dried them with her hair.

Line C   That’s the lovely way that she

              anointed Jesus there.

Verse 2  Come unto me, dear maiden,

     your soul will receive rest.

weary and heavy laden

     Have faith, repent, be blessed.

Line C   Again and again

     his sweet words she hears.

Filled with new hope

     she breaks down in tears.

Everything she’d kept hidden

would in her new life be forgiven.

What could she possibly bring

     for such a gift

         as her offering?

Verse 1 She thought of one possession

     from Himalayan hills afar

     her valuable perfumed nard

         in an alabaster jar.

Verse 2 Rushing out to find him

She saw him entering a door.

Truth to tell one she knew quite well

     because she had entered it before.

Verse 1  You bathed his feet with your tears

     You dried them with your hair

You broke the alabaster jar,

     its fragrance filled the air;

Verse 1  you poured the oil upon his head,

it ran down through his hair.

That’s the lovely way that you

              anointed the Messiah there.

Verse 2  Come unto me, dear maiden,

     your soul will receive rest.

weary and heavy laden

     Have faith, repent, be blessed.

Verse 1 You bathed his feet with your tears

You dried them with your hair.

And now your story will be told

with the Gospel everywhere –

with the Gospel everywhere!
