And through that bitter agony

  And through that bitter agony, 
Which is still th’ agony of pious wits, 
  Disputing what distorted Thee, 
And interrupted evenness with fits ; 
              And through Thy free confession, 
              Though thereby they were then 
Made blind, so that Thou mightst from them have gone ; 
Good Lord, deliver us, and teach us when 
We may not, and we may, blind unjust men.
