Memory of


who departed this life,

March 11th 1792

in the 76th year of her


Thy resignation to the heav'nly power,
And patient meekness in afflications hour,
That firm submission which sustain'd thy heart,
That holy hope! which blunted terrors dart,
Those milder Charities that taught thy breast
To feel and suffer with each soul opprest,
Give now departed saint a view most bright,
Though lost for ever to our mortal sight,
Though human weakness o'er thy grave shall bend

  • Ann Cooke born c. 1717, died 11 Mar 1792, aged 75y
