Memory of

Bernard Van Leer

Who departed this life 17th January in the

Year of our Lord, 33:

Born 7th September (date cracked off)


Within this Tomb

Rests his body in death’s cold embrace

Tis God that lifts our comforts high

Or into them in the grave

He gives and blessed be his name

He ... but what he gave

Peace all our… passions then

Let with rebellious sigh

Be silent at his sovereign will

And … monument lie


Note: Year of Death 1833
