|Death: ||May 17, 1826|
Levi Washburn (1782 - 1859)*
In memory of
Mrs. SARAH wife of
Mr. Levi Washburn
May 17 1826
in her 42d year.
Farewell my husband and my children dear,
No sighs nor griefs for me: suppress your tear;
To all farewell, receive this last adieu;
In realms of bliss, my thought shall visit you.
As up from infancy to youth I grew,
Fair were my prospects—all delightful new;
New joys transporting did my mind engage,
As thus I travelled on life's busy stage.
But ah! the cold and palsied hand of death
Laid hold and preyed upon my vital breath;
No healing balm, nor art, nor skill was found
To give relief, or cure the mortal wound.
With cheering hope I wait to meet my doom,
When called by Jesus from the silent tomb;
Then on the wings of faith I'll calmly soar
To meet my God above: that God adore.
