Hymn/Song Information

THE FORMALIST




Like useful plants which oft are found
On rocky hills or barren ground,
In social virtues many shine,
Who still are void of grace divine.


Those who were never formed anew,
May yet be upright, just and true;
And by a courteous conduct gain,
The praise they labour to obtain.


But that which creatures most applaud,
Is often disapproved of God;
Searcher of hearts, my heart explore,
And with the form give me the power.
