On The Death Of A Minister Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAC DEDE FGFG HIHI

His master taken from his headA
Elisha saw him goB
And in desponding accents saidA
Ah what must Israel doC
-
But he forgot the Lord who liftsD
The beggar to the throneE
Nor knew that all Elijah's giftsD
Would soon be made his ownE
-
What when a Paul has run his courseF
Or when Apollos diesG
Is Israel left without resourceF
And have we no suppliesG
-
Yes while the dear Redeemer livesH
We have a boundless storeI
And shall be fed with what He givesH
Who lives for evermoreI
