William McFarlan
who died June 22, 1852

Amid earth's conflict, wo, and care,
When our dark path appears,
Tis sweet to know thou canst not share,
Our anguish and our tears--
For thou hast gained a brighter land,
Anbd deaths cold stream is past;
Thine are the joys at God's right hand,
That shall forever last.1
