This Day is Mine to Mar or Make

#THIS_DAY_IS_MINE_TO_MAR_OR_MAKE:

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.
