'They think not but that every eye can see (751)

The same disgrace which they themselves behold; (752)

And therefore would they still in darkness be, (753)

To have their unseen sin remain untold; (754)

For they their guilt with weeping will unfold,
And grave, like water that doth eat in steel, (756)

Upon my cheeks what helpless shame I feel.'
