From Attwater's Diary, 26 May 1791, written just after her Miscarriage

God of my life! accept my humble praise

For all thy goodness thro’ my varied days

Goodness & mercy has each want supplied

Thou art my Father Thou my gracious guide

Should future time on earth be longer given

Be it devoted to ye God of Heaven

Supreemly Thee my heart wd still adore

Grateful confess past love & trust for more

Next to my God the Tribute wd I pay

To Friends whose kindness prompts the grateful lay

Accept my thanks still may I thankful prove

Merit your kindness & be blest with Love

When Life is past & Death must be our doom

Sweet be our passage to the silent Tomb

Rising triumphant join the blest above

In perfect praises of Redeeming Love
