Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Alabaster Box  Cece Winans



[G2]   The room grew stil[C2/G]l as she made her way to Jesus
Cm6/G G – Cm – F – Cm – G
She stumbles through the tears that made her blind
[G2]   She felt such pain, some s[C2/G]poke in anger
Heard folks wh[A7]isper, there's no place [Dsus7]here for her k[D7]ind.  [D#dim7]
[Em7]    Still on she came, through the s[Bm7]hame that flushed her face
Until at [Cmaj7]last she knelt before His [F13]feet.
And t[G/D]hough she spoke no words
Everyt[D/E]hing she said was h[Em7]eard,
As she p[Am7]oured her love for the[G2/B] Master
Fr[Cmaj7]om her box of Ala[Dsus7]baster.


Chorus:
[C/D]    And I've come to [G2]pour my praise on H[Esus7]im like [E7]oil
Am7 D/A – Am7
From Mary's Alabaster Box
Don't be [Am7]angry if I [E/G#]wash His feet with my [C/G]tears
And [D/F#]I dry the[Bm7]m with my hair  [Am7]       [C/D]
G Gaug
You weren't there the night He found me.
You did not [Cmaj7]feel what I felt
When He wrapped His [Asus7]love all a[A7]round me.
And [G/D]you don't know the cost of the [Am7]oil in my [C/D]Alabaster [G]Box. [Cm6/G]


Verse 2:
[G2]I can't forget the way[C2/G] life used to be.
Cm6/G G – Cm – F – Cm – G
I was a prisoner to the sin that had me bound
[G2]I spent my days [C2/G]pouring my life without measure.
Into a l[A7]ittle treasure box I thought[Dsus7] I found. [D7]     [D#dim7]
[Em7]   Until the day when [Bm7]Jesus came to me
And healed my [Cmaj7]soul with the wonder of [C#dim]His touch.
So now [G/D]I'm giving back to Him all the p[D/E]raise He's worthy of.
I've been forg[Am7]iven and that's [G2/B]why I [Cmaj7]love Him s[Dsus7]o much.


Chorus 2:
[D/E]    And I've come to [A2]pour my praise on [F#sus7]Him like oi[F#7]l
From Mary'[Bm7]s Alabaster Box [E/B]       [Bm7]
Don't be [Bm7]angry if I [F#/A#]wash His feet with my [D/A]tears
And [E/G#]I dry the[C#m7]m with my [F#m7]hair, [Bm7]…my h[D/E]air.
A Aaug
You weren't there the night Jesus found me.
You did not [Dmaj7]feel what I felt
When He wrapped His [Bsus7]love all a[B7]round me.
And[A/E] you don't know the cost of the [Dm/E]oil
Oh,[A/E] you don't know the cost of my p[Dm6/E]raise.
[A/E]You don't know the cost of the [Bm7]oil
In my [D/E]Alabaster [F6]Box.  [Bbmaj9]          [A2]
