This Day


This day is mine to mar or make,

God keep me strong and true;

Let me no erring by-path take,

No doubtful action do.


Grant me when the setting sun

This fleeting day shall end,

I may rejoice o’er something done,

Be richer by a friend.


Let all I meet along the way

Speak well of me tonight.

I would not have the humblest say

I’d hurt him by a slight.


Let there be something true and fine,

When night slips down, to tell

That I have lived this day of mine

Not selfishly, but well.
