“Anoint My Head with Oil” – Hymn of Confession


Category: Tags: , , ,


This three-stanza hymn on the familiar TERRA PATRIS (“This Is My Father’s World”) tune is deeply personal and calls the worship to admit their “unclean” state.


Anoint my head with oil.
Pour freely from your flask.
My chin is bowed, I humbly wait; for cleansing, this I ask.
Anoint my head with oil!
Let me your presence know
as grace cascades in steady streams and blessings overflow.

I am a sheep of yours;
with matted fleece I stand.
Remove the vermin, dirt and briars by your redeeming hand.
Anoint my head with oil
that I might lavished be
with myrrh of healing, mending, hope. Forgiveness spill over me.

O Shepherd loving, kind,
when I have gone astray,
with gentle rod and loving staff restore me on my way.
Anoint my head with oil!
Protect my life from sin
that I may rise from pain and guilt to follow once again.
