Come Listen, O Ye Formal Saints

Hymn 79 L.M. 1. Come listen, O ye formal saints who, like the Pharisees of old Bring forth your murmurs and complaints Against the men your fate foretold. 2. You must come down, your systems too, Although you do their words condemn, The scriptures prove their message true, And all your works the works of men. 3. Just as it was in Noah's day, And in the year before the flood, So you can traffic, preach, and pray, And disbelieve the word of God. 4. The priests and people, all as one, Must in the general burning fall, Because they strive the light to shun, And disregard the heavenly call.
