Ruth Adams

Rockingham Meeting-House Cemetery,
Rockingham, Vermont

In memory of Mrs Ruth Adams, wife of Mr. Samuel Adams,
who died March 28, 1814, in the 50th year of her age.
My glass is run, my life is spent,
My earthly temple was but lent
Why should I wish for length of years
To spend them in a vail of tears
Friends nor physicians could not save
My mortal body from the grave
Nor can the grave confine it here

When Christ doth call me to appear.
