The Anointing in Bethany by Raymond A. Foss

The tears from her loving eyes
the sweetest perfume
the brushing of her hair
washing him, preparing him
for the journey he would face

Lovingly washing,
anointing our savior
his sacrifice, faithfulness
honored by her grace

In the house in Bethany
this family that he loved
Lazarus, Mary, Martha
teaching us so much
in the way he loved them
in the lessons of their lives
fitting he was anointed in their home
preparing him for the way of the cross
