By Cece Winans

Verse 1 (G)The room grew still (C)as she made her way to Jesus She stum(G)bles through the tears that made her (G)blind she felt such pain Some (C)spoke in anger, heard folks (A)whisper there's no place (D)here for her kind (Em)Still on she came through the (Em)shame that flushed her face until at (C)last, she knelt before His (F)feet and (G)though she spoke no words every(D)thing she said was (Em)heard as she (Am)poured her love for the (G)Master (C)From her box of (D)alabaster Chorus (C)And I've come to (G)pour my praise on (E)Him like oil from Mary's (Am)alabaster box Don't be angry if I (E)wash his feet with my (C)tears and (D)I dry them (Bm)with my (Am)hair You weren't (G)there the night He found me you did not (C)feel what I felt When he wrapped his (A)love all around me and (G)you don't know the cost of the (Am)oil In my (C)alabaster (G)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'd thought I'd 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's worthy of I've been forgiven and that's why I love Him so much Chorus So I've come to pour my praise on Him like oil From Mary's Alabaster box So don't be angry if I wash His feet with my tears And I dry them with my hair, mm 'Cause 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 Not of this oil in my Alabaster box No one knows what you've been through
