of the REV THOMAS WEST
who died July 14th 1790 In the 82nd Year

Weep ye, my friends, for West is gone, His glass of time cloth cease to run, His active tongue and virtuous heart have ceased to act. They've done their part. Although he's gone he yet doth live, His soul immortal cloth survive. He's now disrobed of earthly clay. And shines in one eternal day.
