in memory of
James METCALFE late of Gunnerside who departed this life May 24th
1855. Aged 63 years.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is Death
Death parts the Body and the Soul,
No further reaches his control,
Death cannot part the soul from Sin,
No, that's the work of God within.
Reader, prepare to meet thy God,
through faith in the redeemer's blood,
But never hope to enter heaven,
while unrenewed and unforgiven.
