‘And They laughed at Him’
Richard Crashaw (G.) (c. 1613–1649)
 
MATT. IX. 24.

LAUGHTER at Christ the Saviour—
  Laughter ’mid falling tears!
O which show’d greater folly,
  Vain laughter or vain fears?
Such laughter ’mid such sorrow,        5
  O fools ye may believe:
Such laughter in such Presence
  Gave greatest cause to grieve.
