J. C. Squire, ed.  A Book of Women’s Verse.  1921.
 
Written on her Death-Bed
By Laetitia Pilkington (1712–1750)
 
MY Lord, my Saviour, and my God,
I bow to thy correcting rod;
Nor will I murmur or complain,
Tho’ every limb be fill’d with pain;
Tho’ my weak tongue its aid denies;        5
And daylight wounds my wretched eyes.
