The substance of anointing was the oil

Drawn from the fatness of the olive tree

To honour God and man, by patient toil.

And oil gave light. The anointed priest could see

The artefacts which decked the holy shrine

Displaying craftsmanship of high degree.

And olive oil was mingled in the fine

Flour of the choice oblation in his hand;

The finest wheaten flour men could refine.
