Indicted by Isaiah

"Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias (Isaiah) prophesy of you saying, This people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honoreth Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. But in vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men" (Matthew 15:7-9).

We hear Isaiah's prophecy
With his indictment plain,
Describing the hypocrisy
Of worship that is vain.

Our Lord spoke to the Pharisee
When He had spoken thus,
Yet still He searches the degree
Those words are true of us!

So search us, Lord, and thus expose
Hypocrisy within,
Lest we become the same as those
Whose hollow praise was sin.
