Alabaster Box

The room grew still
As she made her way to Jesus
She stumbles through the tears that
Made her blind
She felt such pain
Some spoke in anger
Heard folks whisper
There’s no place here for her kind
Still she came on
Through the shame that flushed her face
Until at last she knelt before His feet
And though she spoke no words
Everything she said was heard
As she pored her love for the master
From her box of alabaster

And I’ve come to pour
My praise on him like oil
From Mary’s Alabaster Box
Don’t be angry if I wash His feet with my tears
And I dry them with my hair
You weren’t there the night He found me
You did not feel what I felt
When He wrapped His loving
Arms around me

And you don’t know the cost
Of the oil in my Alabaster Box


Verse 2

I can’t forget the way life used to be
I was a prisoner to the sin that
Had me bound
And I spent my days
Poured my life without measure
Into a little treasure box
I thought I found
Until the day when Jesus came to me
And healed my soul with the wonder
Of His touch





So now I’m giving back to Him
All the praise He worthy of
I’ve been forgiven and that’s why
I love Him so much

Chorus

And I’ve come to pour
My praise on him like oil
From Mary’s Alabaster Box
Don’t be angry if I wash His feet with my tears
And I dry them with my hair
You weren’t there the night Jesus found me
You did not feel what I felt
When He wrapped His loving
Arms around me

And you don’t know the cost
Oh, you don’t the cost of my praise
You don’t know the cost
Of the oil in my Alabaster Box
