Let me stand behind You, Lord

1
Let me stand behind You, Lord.
Let me wash Your feet with my tears.
Let me wipe them with my hair.
Let me kiss them and anoint them
    With the ointment.

I love You!
Jesus, I love You!
May I waste my all and life on You.
Let me pour the ointment pure
On Your head and on Your feet,
On You, most precious One
Because I love You.
2
Let me take a pound of ointment pure
Of great value to anoint Your feet
And wipe them with my hair
That the house be filled with the fragrance
    Of the ointment.

I love You!
Jesus, I love You!
May I waste my all and life on You.
Let me pour the ointment pure
On Your head and on Your feet,
On You, most precious One
Because I love You.
3
Lord, they said if You were a prophet,
You should know who and what I am.
I’m a sinner that toucheth You,
A woman not worthy to anoint You.

But I love You!
Jesus, I love You!
You forgave me the most
    now I love You, Lord, the most.
Let me pour the ointment pure
On Your head and on Your feet,
On You, most precious One,
Because You love me.
4
Let my love from my being wash Your feet
And my glory without wipe them too
Let me kiss them where the nails would pierce.
All my love, Lord, and glory I’ll waste on You.

I love You!
Jesus, I love You!
All my glory and love I pour
    and waste on You.
Receive my ointment, Lord.
It’s all I have, dear Lord.
For You, most precious One,
Because I love You.

This song leads me to touch my spirit. I love You Jesus, I love You. May I waste my all and life on You. Let me pour the ointment pure, on Your head and on Your feet on You PRECIOUS ONE BECAUSE I LOVE YOU. May the Lord daily reveal Himself to us and grant us such an experience like Mary that we will waste ourselves on our precious One.

Verse 3 reminds us that we are sinners that touched the Lord. We are like the woman not worthy to anoint the Lord. But the Lord, knowing who we are, allowed us to touch Him and anoint Him! What a privilege to pour ourselves on Him! Our consecration is not a boast or some kind of extraordinary sacrifice. It is our reasonable reaction to His love toward us. Saints, we are so honored that we can give our all to Him!

Every time I recall this testimony of Mary of Bethany, it touches me deeply. She took opportunity to "waste" herself on the Lord and anoint the Lord properly before His burial because she sat at the Lord's feet and listened to His word. Lord make me love You and treasure You more than anything else!

As I listen to this hymn, I couldn't help but touch the Lord in my spirit... I want to embrace Him because of what He has done to save a sinner like me.... How wonderful if all the sisters would love the Lord and pour out all they have just like what Mary had done!

God forgave us the most, so all we can do is to love Him the most. When we see the preciousness of Jesus, we like Mary would "waste" our all on Him.
