Hymn 136

Written by: Isaac Watts | Biography
 | Quotes (11) |
 Sincerity and hypocrisy; or, formality in worship.
John 4:24; Ps.
139:23,24.
God is a Spirit, just and wise, He sees our inmost mind; In vain to heav'n we raise our cries, And leave our souls behind.
Nothing but truth before his throne With honor can appear; The painted hypocrites are known Through the disguise they wear.
Their lifted eyes salute the skies, Their bending knees the ground; But God abhors the sacrifice, Where not the heart is found.
Lord, search my thoughts, and try my ways, And make my soul sincere Then shall I stand before thy face, And find acceptance there.
