She Did What She Could

She broke the nard’s jar,
And she perfumed his head;
She did a beautiful thing,
Did as much as she could;
She prepared Him for burial,
And in the next days,
That scent fought the stench
Of betrayal, and of blood,
Of despair, and Calvary’s gore;
The aroma changed that atmosphere
Of a death which changed this world
And wherever the gospel is preached
What she did has been told

– inspired by Matthew 26:6–13
