Just a consultant's suggestion----Perhaps, if Longfellow deiberately left
out the words that even the Bible does not give,yet Longfellow gives us a
shorthand (!) to round out the poem, then maybe Longfellow is making a
comment---are we the readers being prompted to ask in our blindness, are WE
blind, or did Longfellow intentionally censor and MAKE US blind by not
including something,that wasn't there in the original? Just a thought.

who knows the words that Jesus spoke in this poem; did Longfellow
intentionally leave these words out?
one version of the poem I saw had (greek) instead of (!) I say (?)
