A Prayer Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


God grant me kindly thoughtA
And patience through the dayB
And in the things I've wroughtA
Let no man living sayB
That hate's grim mark has stainedC
What little joy I've gainedC
God keep my nature sweetD
Teach me to bear a blowE
Disaster and defeatD
And no resentment showE
If failure must be mineF
Sustain this soul of mineF
God grant me strength to faceG
Undaunted day or nightH
To stoop to no disgraceG
To win my little fightH
Let me be when it is o'erI
As manly as beforeJ
