Mrs. Henry Theodore Ault
Died on Monday morning, the 25th inst., at 15 minutes before 2:00 o'clock at the residence of her mother, Mrs. Mary McClung, on Clinch St., Eliza Morgan Ault, wife of Henry T. Ault of this city. Mrs. Ault was the second daughter of the late Capt. M. McClung. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church. She was an earnest and devout Christian. She was decided in her opinions, firm in her convictions, true to her principles, staunch in her faith. She was married on the 15th of February 1871, and on the 21st day of November became the mother of a living child. Amid the congratulations of friends and kindred, she was attacked with inflammation of the stomach and claimed as a dictum of death. Grace reigned and triumphed, and she was enabled to submit her will entirely to God's. She rejoiced in the salvation of Christ, trusted in Him as her only hope, and prayed for grace and strength to cast all her cares upon Him and to have no will but his. She prayed for her dear mother and sisters, and for her little baby and for her beloved husband that the Lord would teach him that the true and real happiness is to be found in God. Among other petitioners, she presented this: "O God, I trust in Thee-in Thee alone, stand by me now, in this dreadful hour, when no earthly friend can go with me through the dark valley. O, God, I trust in Thee: Let Athy rod and thy staff comfort me".
And so for two hours, praying and adoring; awake to a full consciousness of the great work of the dying; growing weaker until her voice sank in whispers, and then her feeble hands, will clasp in prayer, would rise and fall till life and motion ceased.
For her to die was her gain.
"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints".
