12. The reason is obvious

 My brave day sinks
In my darkening night.
 My confident heart sinks
In my trembling fear.
  Do you know why?
The reason is obvious.
When I was wearing my victory-crown
When I was sitting on the victory-throne
I consciously forgot
To place at God’s Feet
My garland of surrender-gratitude.
