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
