As when Mary poured the ointment
on your feet, O Saviour Christ,
so I bring you my devotion
now, in grateful sacrifice.
Fill my life, O Lord, with perfume,
spread its fragrance far and near;
as myself to you I offer,
may I show that you are here.

As our praises, our confessions,
our petitions rise today,
Father, may their sweetness please you,
for in Jesus' name we pray.
Fill your church, O Lord, with perfume,
spread its fragrance far and near;
as our prayers to you we offer,
may we show that you are here.

All for love your Son from heaven
for our sins endured the cross;
may his beauty be apparent
as your Spirit changes us.
Fill the nations, Lord, with perfume,
spread its fragrance far and near;
as our gifts to you we offer,
show the world that you are here.
