Holy Ointment (Poem)

Updated on September 17, 2013

Holy Ointment

Lord, let thy holy ointment from above

My wounded heart to dress with love,

Rub and saturate every sore spot

Heal and soothe where sin would rot,

Bathe me in thy healing flow

Make my heart they grace to know,

Let me sweet spices and fruit bear

Apply thy ointment everywhere.
