The late Beloved Wife

Reader forbear nor Shed One Useless Tear
Her Soul is fled, the Body now lies here
But when Immortal Life it shall put on
By Pow'r deriv'd from GOD'S Eternal SON
Then Death no more shall seperate the Pair
But Endless joys shall crown the Waking Fair
Till then Suspend thy Thoughts of what She is
But Live like Her and Gain Eternal Bliss.
