Yea though I walk in death
Yet will I fear no ill
For Thou are with me and Thy rod
And Staff my comfort still.

But ‘tis God that hails her thus
He can all your sorrow heal.

The Lord givith and
The Lord taketh away.
Behold He taketh away, who can hinder Him
Who shall say unto Him
What doeth Thou?

Whose home is found.
Annie Mary Spencer 1868 6yr
She is dead but lives with Him
She is gone her image dim
And shall linger ?
She was a tender mother here
And in her life the Lord did fear
We trust our loss will be her gain
And that with Christ she’s gone to reign.
The Lord giveth and the Lord
Blessed be the name of the Lord

Suffer the children
To come unto Me
Eliza Ann McNary Ralston 26yr
She was a lovely star whose light
Around my pathway shone
Amid the darksome vale of tears
Thru which I journey on
That star went down in beauty But
In the bright and dazzling
That decks the sky.
Harriet McNary 1877
Farewell to thee Harriet
We ne’er shall see thee more
Thou art free from all they trouble
From which you suffered sore
Her weary march of the life
She’s gone to rest on that beautiful shore.
