DANGER OF HYPOCRICY




Let hypocrites their fancied joys
And empty pleasures loudly boast,
One frown from heaven their hope destroys,
And all their airy bliss is lost.


A glimmering light may chance to swell,
Within a vain unhallowed breast,
A light that only leads to hell
And leaves the soul but more distressed.


The conscience feels some dread alarms,
And trembles at the lifted rod;
And then a thousand rites and forms
Become a substitute for God.


But self-deceit shall be revealed,
When Christ the righteous judge appears;
Nor shall the sinner be concealed,
Beneath the thin disguise he wears.
