Take A Bath My Friend

You need a bath my friend
A thorough cleansing too
In fact we could all benefit
From a bit of God’s shampoo
We wreak so much of self
We smell of covetous and greed
We got used to the stench
We forgot the bath we need
We use lots of body powder
Douse with deodorant and perfume
But the taint of self ambition
Takes the air out of the room
As we arise from bed each morning
This may sound a bit absurd
But we should not leave the house
Without bathing in God’s word
Let the Holy Ghost wash over
Let Him cleanse each pit, zit and pore
The blemishes you can’t see
That is what His word is for
He’ll anoint you with His sweetness
With the fragrance of His oil
You bend down a smelly servant
You rise up smelling royal
Take a bath.

Psalm 45:7
Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest
wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath
anointed thee with the oil of gladness
above thy fellows.

Psalm 45:8
All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes,
and cassia, out of the ivory palaces,
whereby they have made thee glad.
