Here rests in hope the body of
Deacon Thomas Barrett, who
departed this life June 20, 1779
In the 72d year of his age.
In him the Christian graces shone uncommonly
bright. Unfeigned love & distributive
charity ran through his sentiments &
actions. The blessing of the widow, the fatherless,
the poor and those ready to persish
came upon him. His talents as a Deacon &
private christian were superior, and so
excercised as to leave behind him a sweet
remembrance of his name. So nearly did he
initiate his Saviour, that it may be said with
truth he had the spirit of Christ, which the
Judgment day, we trsut, will better shew
than any human testimony.
Death steady to his purpose, from the womb
Pursues till we are driven to the tomb!
O reader, wisely lay this thought to heart
And seek an interest in the better part
Then when you close in death your mortal eyes
Your soul may rise & reign above the skies.
"Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord"
