Prayer Of A Soldier In France Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: AA BB CC DD EE FF GG HH

My shoulders ache beneath my packA
Lie easier Cross upon His backA
I march with feet that burn and smartB
Tread Holy Feet upon my heartB
Men shout at me who may not speakC
They scourged Thy back and smote Thy cheekC
I may not lift a hand to clearD
My eyes of salty drops that searD
Then shall my fickle soul forgetE
Thy Agony of Bloody SweatE
My rifle hand is stiff and numbF
From Thy pierced palm red rivers comeF
Lord Thou didst suffer more for meG
Than all the hosts of land and seaG
So let me render back againH
This millionth of Thy gift AmenH
