Lingering At His Feet


Martha was busy preparing the meal

Mary made ready her heart

Just a few moments she wanted to steal

To glean from all He would impart

Martha complained she needed help

Preparing the drinks and meat

Mary decided her purpose was

To sit at the Savior’s feet

Mary knew it was more important

To linger in His presence and be still

Hungering and thirsting for righteousness

How she longed to be filled

Mary knelt behind Him

Washed His feet with her tears

Used her hair to dry them

Because she loved Him dear
