Alabaster Box

Cece Winans





 G2C2/G
    The room grew still as she made her way to Jesus
Cm6/G G – Cm – F – Cm – G
She stumbles through the tears that made her blind
 G2C2/G
    She felt such pain, some spoke in anger
 A7Dsus7D7D#dim7
Heard folks whisper, there's no place here for her kind.   
 Em7Bm7
     Still on she came, through the shame that flushed her face
 Cmaj7F13
Until at last she knelt before His feet.
 G/D
And though she spoke no words
 D/EEm7
Everything she said was heard,
 Am7G2/B
As she poured her love for the Master
 Cmaj7Dsus7
From her box of Alabaster.

Chorus:
 C/DG2Esus7E7
     And I've come to pour my praise on Him like oil
Am7 D/A – Am7
From Mary's Alabaster Box
 Am7E/G#C/G
Don't be angry if I wash His feet with my tears
 D/F#Bm7Am7C/D
And I dry them with my hair          
G Gaug
You weren't there the night He found me.
 Cmaj7
You did not feel what I felt
 Asus7A7
When He wrapped His love all around me.
 G/DAm7C/DGCm6/G
And you don't know the cost of the oil in my Alabaster Box.  

Verse 2:
 G2C2/G
 I can't forget the way life used to be.
Cm6/G G – Cm – F – Cm – G
I was a prisoner to the sin that had me bound
 G2C2/G
 I spent my days pouring my life without measure.
 A7Dsus7D7D#dim7
Into a little treasure box I thought I found.       
 Em7Bm7
    Until the day when Jesus came to me
 Cmaj7C#dim
And healed my soul with the wonder of His touch.
 G/DD/E
So now I'm giving back to Him all the praise He's worthy of.
 Am7G2/BCmaj7Dsus7
I've been forgiven and that's why I love Him so much.

Chorus 2:
 D/EA2F#sus7F#7
     And I've come to pour my praise on Him like oil
 Bm7E/BBm7
From Mary's Alabaster Box         
 Bm7F#/A#D/A
Don't be angry if I wash His feet with my tears
 E/G#C#m7F#m7Bm7D/E
And I dry them with my hair, …my hair.
A Aaug
You weren't there the night Jesus found me.
 Dmaj7
You did not feel what I felt
 Bsus7B7
When He wrapped His love all around me.
 A/EDm/E
And you don't know the cost of the oil
 A/EDm6/E
Oh, you don't know the cost of my praise.
 A/EBm7
 You don't know the cost of the oil
 D/EF6Bbmaj9A2
In my Alabaster Box.
