On The Death Of A Minister Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


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
