the leper

And the rest of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall put on the head of him who is to be cleansed, to make atonement for him before the Lord.
Leviticus 14:29

like oil running down the head
of a grateful leper cleansed
Your Holy Spirit, Lord
anoints Your written Word
blessing me

I was dirty, broken, scarred and sore
until You found me and gave me more
grace transformed my leper's skin
so I can serve You as I am
You healed me

and I am now whole and clean
before You I stand redeemed
made holy, righteous, true
to live to honor You
service comes from me

ten lepers Jesus once made clean
but only one returned with thanks to bring
my grateful heart daily sings Your praise
for holiness and a life now saved
overflowing me
