For Martha and Mary, try "In boldness, look to God" words by Mary Louise Bringle, Music "Morning Song" the rights are held by GIA publications. I found it in "Voices Found: Women in the Church's Song" put out by Church Publishing Incorporated

One I love for Martha and Mary is John Bell's I Will Give What I Have in his book Enemy of Apathy
1.
From a high, secret shelf, I take what I hid myself —
perfume, precious and rare, never meant to spill or spare.
This I'll carefully break, this I'll empty for his sake:
I will give what I have to my Lord.

2.
Though the action is crude, it will show my gratitude
for the truth that I’ve leant from the one who's heaven-sent;
for this life once a mess which his beauty can express,
I will give what I have to my Lord.

3.
With his critics around, common gossip will abound.
They'll note all that they see to discredit him and me.
Let them smirk, let them jeer, say what people want to hear;
I will give what I have to my Lord.

4.
It's because he'll receive, that the likes of me believe
God has time for the poor. He has shown us heaven's door.
Be it perfume and care, be it anger or despair,
I will give what I have to my Lord.

For Martha and Mary, I have a couple of favourites; from 'Enemy Of Apathy', John Bell's 'I Will Give What I Have' - and in Servant Songs and other books, 'Matthew Was A Lonely Man' by Colin Gibson and John Gibson, with the last vers about Martha.
