A passion burns within my heart
That words fail to describe
I yearn to find a better way
To show you what's inside

A priceless jar, with precious oil
Held in my trembling hand
I break and empty at your feet
And know you'll understand

As fragments fall, I'm broken too
And what's inside spills out
That you accept this worship act
I have no cause to doubt

The jar cannot be mended or
What was inside restored
I cannot claim the treasure back
Upon your feet I poured

A sweet and fragrant perfume now
Pervades this holy place
And You, the source of my delight
Will meet me face to face

Beautiful!!!!! I always wondered what the stuff in that jar smelled like :)
Brandi Roberts 27 Jul 2005
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! And as for that extra stanza, I would suggest that you put it in between the last two stanzas. So beautiful! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING!
Benjamin Stephens 27 Jul 2005
Melanie, You've done it again. Awesome look at a very intimate act of worship. Beautiful imagry - and as far as placement of the extra stanza - I'm with Brandi on that count. Do you have a home for it? It's too good not to share widely. Ben :o)

You've really captured in words a portrait of the heart of this Biblical woman--and the heart of so many who worship Him today.
Deborah Porter  27 Jul 2005
Melanie, this is absolutely beautiful. The sacrifice of worship - you expressed it so well. With love, Deb
