Wesley completed his elegy to the memory of Jonathan Battishill on 13th December, 1801. The words are recycled from Phillips' "To the memory of the late Earl of Halifax, June 30th, 1718".
Lyrics: Ambrose Phillips

Weeping o'er thy sacred urn,
Ever shall the muses mourn;
Sadly shall their numbers flow,
Ever elegant in woe.
