She Has Anointed My Feet
This love demands activity
a giving impulse from the heart
undeserving of this wondrous love
the tears come rapid and unbidden.
I know my failing are so public
what I have had to do to survive
in this ugly and vulgar world
has made me a broken and scared vessel.
And yet God incarnate has come to dwell
in this city which is so forgotten
he comes among the common people
and makes a holy place for us.
This divine love demands my response
I will give everything to receive from him
there is so little I can truly give
but my grateful heart and soul.
