What Love

What Love

She took her hair, and dried the tears that fell upon his feet
My, how she loved her Master so
Her reputation— less than pure, but only He could see
Her tears were for the day they’d lay Him low
Then in her hand, she held a vessel filled with sweet perfume
An exorbitant price, but she breaks the box, and its fragrance fills the room

What love, love that has no price
Asking nothing in return, the kind you give and don’t think twice
What love, never holding one thing back
Such love that she would give the best she had,
What love

From a precious little baby, to a man of thirty-three
Down through the years, they watched Him grow
From a little town called Bethlehem, on to Calvary
Up that lonely hill, they watched Him go
What He felt inside His broken heart, God only knows
The hammer struck, a vessel broke, making that precious crimson flow

What love, love that has no price
Asking nothing in return, the kind you give and don’t think twice
What love, never holding one thing back
Such love that He would give the best He had,
What love

This is one of my favorite songs. I’d love to see sheet music for it – all I have is a typed-out copy of the words and chords.

I may never be able to repay what my God has done for me, but I want to love Him back to the best of my ability!
