--These, constrained to wield the sword
Of disputation, shrunk not, though assailed
With hostile din, and combating in sight
Of angry umpires, partial and unjust;
And did, thereafter, bathe their hands in fire,
So to declare the conscience satisfied:

Nor for their bodies would accept release,

But blessing God and praising him bequeathed,

With their last breath from out the smouldering flame,
The faith which they by diligence had earned,
And through illuminating grace received,
For their dear countrymen and all mankind.
O high example, constancy divine!

W. WORDSWORTH.
