Perfumed Ointment

Isn't it enough for me,
When my precious Lord receives
Treasures I pour on His feet
As perfumed ointment?
Isn't it enough to give
My best exclusively for His
Sole enjoyment, then to kiss
With perfumed ointment?
It’s enough. That’s the answer
When I break as alabaster.
What I lavish on my Master
Is His essence.
