Intro:   


Verse 1:
G2                   C2/G   
   The room grew still as she made her way to Jesus
     Cm6/G                                     GCmFCmG
She stumbles through the tears that made her blind
G2                           C2/G   
   She felt such pain, some spoke in anger
              A7                      Dsus7         D7    D#dim7   
Heard folks whisper, there's no place here for her kind.
Em7                                 Bm7     
    Still on she came, through the shame that flushed her face
         Cmaj7                     F13   
Until at last she knelt before His feet. 
     G/D
And though she spoke no words
      D/E                Em7    
Everything she said was heard, 
        Am7                   G2/B     
As she poured her love for the Master
  Cmaj7            Dsus7  
From her box of Alabaster.


Chorus:
C/D                  G2                 Esus7   E7  
    And I've come to pour my praise on Him like oil 
           Am7             D/AAm7  
From Mary's Alabaster Box
         Am7        E/G#                  C/G   
Don't be angry if I wash His feet with my tears 
    D/F#     Bm7             Am7    C/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 
                    Asus7     A7    
When He wrapped His love all around me. 
    G/D                            Am7       C/D       G    Cm6/G
And you don't know the cost of the oil in my Alabaster Box.


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


Chorus 2:
D/E                  A2                F#sus7     F#7    
    And I've come to pour my praise on Him like oil 
          Bm7             E/B    Bm7  
From Mary's Alabaster Box
         Bm7        F#/A#                 D/A 
Don't be angry if I wash His feet with my tears 
    E/G#     C#m7      F#m7  Bm7  D/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 
                    Bsus7     B7   
When He wrapped His love all around me. 
   A/E                             Dm/E     
And you don't know the cost of the oil 
   A/E                             Dm6/E
Oh, you don't know the cost of my praise. 
A/E                            Bm7   
You don't know the cost of the oil
      D/E       F6    Bbmaj9    A2   
In my Alabaster Box.
