Among disciples He could start,
As He could with Pharisees,
Sentences of high intent,
"Verily, verily ...".

If the world - or disciples -
Criticised one who anointed, He
Showed that He would stand
To such a noble thing.

To those who would condemn
Mary He would readily
Answer: He reflected the divine
View of a righteous action.

"They shall see God", He
Taught His disciples. Not
Those washed in the doctors' teachings
But "the pure in heart".

So His own gathered together
In His absence: forming for
His presence an atmosphere
Of delighted affection.
