Godfrey Sampson: Ah, my dear angrie Lord

Ah, my deare angrie Lord, since Thou dost love, yet strike; cast down, yet help afford; sure I will do the like. I will complain, yet praise, I will bewail, approve; and all my sowre-sweet dayes I will lament, and love. (from Bitter-Sweet, George Herbert (1593-1633)
