Martha Ann Harris
In this place on Saturday the 18th inst., Martha Ann, daughter of D.G. and Sarah Harris, aged seven years and nine months.
Death has been here and Borne away,
A sister from our side;
Just in the morning of her day,
As young as we she died.
We cannot tell who next must fall,
Beneath thy chastening rod;
One must be first, but let us all,
Prepare to meet our God.
May each attend with willing feel,
The means of knowledge here;
And wait around thy mercy seat,
With hope as well as fear.
Lord, to thy wisdom and thy care,
May we resign our days;
Content to live and serve thee here,
