"I dreamt I was in Heaven
Among the angels fair;
I’d never seen none so handsome
That twine in golden hair.
They looked so neat and sang so sweet
And play’d the Golden Harp.
I was about to pick an angel out
And take her to my heart:
But the moment I began to plea,
I thought of you, my love.
There was none I’d ever seen so beautiful
On earth or Heaven above,
Goodbye my dear wife and Mother.
Also my sister.
Rufus Buck, Yours truly."

"Cast me not off, O Lord, now in my old age, when my strength faileth me. He hath afflicted me sore; but he will never, never cast me off. I am wholly Christ’s, and the devil has nothing to do with me; and God forbid that I should not now have experience of the sweet consolation in Christ."

Martin Bucer (1491-1551)
