They choose a murderer, and all agree

March 22, 2016

 


  See how spite cankers things. These words aright
  Used, and wished, are the whole worlds light:
  But hony is their gall, brightnesse their night:
           Was ever grief like mine?

  They choose a murderer, and all agree
  In him to do themselves a courtesie;
  For it was their own cause who killed me:
           Was ever grief like mine?

  And a seditious murderer he was:
  But I the Prince of peace; peace that doth passe
  All understanding, more than heav’n doth glasse:
           Was ever grief like mine?


George Herbert, The Works of George Herbert (London: George Routledge & Co., 1854), 22–23.
