Children of Joseph & Eliza Hayes.
We miss them, ah! in every place,In Memory of Priscilla, widow of John Norris, who died May 6, 1856, aged 79 yrs. 3 mos.
And sometimes feel the unbidden tear,
We cherish every fading trace,
But never, never wish them here.
She sleeps in Jesus.In Memory of Levi Orcutt, Jr., who died May 21, 1853, aged 25 yrs. 6 mos.
A holy solemn stillness reignsIn Memory of Albert Tufts, who died May 8, 1845, aged 36 years. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was; and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. [To be continued.]
Around this lifeless, mouldering clay;
Nor pain, nor grief, nor anxious fears
Can reach the peaceful sleeper here.
Can sighs recall the spirit fled?
Shall vain regrets arise?
Though death has caused the altered mien,
In Heaven the ransomed soul is seen.
