A Dedication Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAB CDCD EFEF GHGI JKJK FLFL IMIM

My new cut ashlar takes the lightA
Where crimson blank the windows flareB
By my own work before the nightA
Great Overseer I make my prayerB
-
If there be good in that I wroughtC
Thy hand compell'd it Master ThineD
Where I have fail'd to meet Thy thoughtC
I know through Thee the blame if mineD
-
One instant's toil to Thee deniedE
Stands all Eternity's offenceF
Of that I did with Thee to guideE
To Thee through Thee be excellenceF
-
Who lest all thought of Eden fadeG
Bring'st Eden to the craftsman's brainH
Godlike to muse o'er his own tradeG
And manlike stand with God againI
-
The depth and dream of my desireJ
The bitter paths wherein I strayK
Thou knowest Who hast made the FireJ
Thou knowest Who hast made the ClayK
-
One stone the more swings to her placeF
In that dread Temple of Thy worthL
It is enough that through Thy graceF
I saw naught common on Thy earthL
-
Take not that vision from my kenI
O whatsoe'er may spoil or speedM
Help me to need no aid from menI
That I may help such men as needM
