CAPT.
DAVID BESSE
died
Feb. 4, 1870;
Aged 63 years.


"For by grace are ye saved, through faith; and
that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God."

How blessed the saint when called to die,
How calm he sinks ... heavenly rest.
How ..... ..... its closing eye
As sinks the sun in parting west.

How sweet to die and be at rest,
When weary life's ... work is done
Yea, sweet to lie on Jesus' breast,
And feel the heavenly work begun.
