Martha Bartlette Henley
Mt. Zion Baptist Church Cemetery
Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have
called you by name.... When you pass through
the waters.... I will be with you... when you
walk through the fire you shall not be burned...
For I am the Lord your God... you are precious
in my eyes...and I love you.
Isaiah 43:(Selected excerps) verses 1-4.

Two shining eyes at rest
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.
God knows you had to leave us
But you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you
The day He took you home.
To some you are forgotten
To others, just part of the past
But to us who loved and lost you
Your memory will always last.
