Many my beloved have mourned for thee.
And yet shall many mourn:
Long as thy name on earth shall be
In sweet remembrance borne
By those who loved thee here and love
Thy spirit still in realms above.
While thine absence we deplore,
Though we behold thy face no more,
In peace thine ashes sleep.
My soul with thine desires to rest
Supremely and forever blest.
Thou art not dead thou could’st not die.
To nobler life thou wert borne.
Farewell but not a long farewell, in Heaven may I appear
The trials of my faith to tell, in thy transported ear.
Erected by his beloved wife, Fanny Sampson.
