On Sincere Praises [5.19.16]

Let not my lips utter a word
that my heart has not sent.
Let not a praise from me be heard
if, without sincerity, out it went.
And no, let not my tongue sing grace,
nor my mouth utter even one prayer,
if these words would be said in haste–
if my heart would not truly care.
But cleans my whole heart to purity;
wash away all my sinful guilt,
that I may worship you sincerely.
Pray hear me, lest without Your grace I wilt.
