NARD – SONNET (John 12)

anoint lower res

She poured on Him the costly nard and wiped

The fragrance filled the home of sweet perfume

Her hair uncovered boldly in their sight

He was anointed for His kingly tomb



But Judas did not see her sacrifice

And could not comprehend who Jesus was

He did not see Him worthy of the price

Or one deserving man’s sincere applause



Do I give costly sacrifice like this?

On bended, humbled knees do I come near?

When opposition comes, do I persist?

Do I pour out my praise for all to hear?



I pour my time, my love, my life, my call

For you, my King, are worthy of it all
