The Doctors

  The sacred academy above 
Of Doctors, whose pains have unclasp’d, and taught 
  Both books of life to us—for love 
To know Thy scriptures tells us, we are wrote 
              In Thy other book—pray for us there, 
              That what they have misdone 
Or missaid, we to that may not adhere. 
Their zeal may be our sin.  Lord, let us run 
Mean ways, and call them stars, but not the sun.
