Memorial to John Murray

Halifax Parish Church

Memorial to John Murray in Halifax Parish Church by Joseph Bentley Leyland


Miserere mei Deus
to the Memory of
John Murray. M.A.
Curate of the Parish
who departed this life at Duncrivie in Scotland
in the Year of our Lord MDCCCXLII.
The time of his Ministry was short, but faithful
service standeth not in number of years.  He cared for
the poor and gave them reverence as Christ's chosen,
and their blessing was his reward.  In his public
ministrations earnest and devout, As a preacher eloquent,
fervent, fearless, He taught men to walk in the old paths
And shunned not to declare the whole Counsel of God.
Those who have been encourag'd by his example,
instructed by his teaching, guided by his care,
have in grateful remembrance erected this Memorial
