While driving to Rice Lake I noticed this lone monument - I actually thought it might a lone grave site - and being curious and with time to spare I stopped and had a look.

To my surprise I discovered it was a monument honoring Joseph Scriven. The front of the monument reads:

13 MILES NORTH
PENGELLY'S CEMETERY
LIES THE PHILANTHROPIST
AND AUTHOR OF THE GREAT MASTERPIECE

WRITTEN AT PORT HOPE. 1857
WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS
ALL OUR SINS AND GRIEFS TO BEAR
WHAT A PRIVILEGE TO CARRY
EVERYTHING TO GOD IN PRAYER
OH WHAT PEACE WE OFTEN FORFEIT
O WHAT NEEDLESS PAIN WE BEAR
ALL BECAUSE WE DO NOT CARRY
EVERYTHING TO GOD IN PRAYER
_________________
HAVE WE TRIALS AND TEMPTATIONS
IS THERE TROUBLE ANYWHERE
WE SHOULD NEVER BE DISCOURAGED
TAKE IT TO THE LORD IN PRAYER
CAN WE FIND A FRIEND SO FAITHFUL
WHO WILL ALL OUR SORROWS SHARE
JESUS KNOWS OUR EVERY WEAKNESS
TAKE IT TO THE LORD IN PRAYER
_________________
ARE WE WEAK AND HEAVY LADEN
CUMBERED WITH A LOAD OF CARE
PRECIOUS SAVIOR STILL OUR REFUGE
TAKE IT TO THE LORD IN PRAYER
DO THEY FRIENDS DESPISE, FORSAKE THREE?
THOU WILL FIND A SOLACE THERE
MEMORIAL TO
JOSEPH SCRIVEN B.A.
BORN SEP. 10. 1819 - DIED AUG. 10. 1886

There is additional text on the back of the monument but it is difficult to read. I suspect it has the two remaining lines of the third verse (In His arms He’ll take and shield thee, Thou wilt find a solace there).

I really enjoyed finding this monument because that hymn is one of my favourites.

To log this cache you will need to visit the monument and find a code word - it is on the side of the monument. There is an inscription on the south side of the monument - the second word is the log password, enter it exactly as it appears.
