Hymn Lyrics for John 12:1-8

Six Days Before the Passover

To the tune: ST. ANNE O God, Our Help in Ages Past. Based on John 11:55-12:8. Words: William Weber, 2011.

v. 1
Six days before the Passover,
our Lord to Beth’ny came.
A dinner for the Lord was giv’n
to honor Jesus’ name.

v. 2
While Martha served her Lord and Christ,
and Laz’rus near reclined,
to Jesus Mary gave a gift,
her love was not confined.

v. 3
A costly ointment, Mary poured,
in love upon her Lord.
A pleasing fragrance filled the house,
where Jesus was adored.

v. 4
The gospel is the scent of life
to all who love the Lord.
They seek to honor Him who died,
in Christ we are restored.

v. 5
The gospel is the scent of death
to those in unbelief.
The grace and glory of our Lord
their blinded eyes won’t see.

v. 6
O honor Christ who died for us,
eternal life to give.
He saves from sin and death and hell,
in Him we truly live.
