And through that bitter agony

And through that bitter agony,
Which is still the 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.
