from Valley of Vision, an anonymous 16th century Puritan prayer:

“Of all hypocrites, grant that I may not be
An evangelical hypocrite,
Who sins more safely because grace abounds,
Who tells his lusts that Christ’s blood cleanseth them,
Who reasons that God cannot cast him into hell, for he is saved,
Who loves evangelical preaching, churches, Christians,
But lives unholily.”
