    Maria Buchanan Aitken Schwebel Grave - Rookwood Cemetery
    Maria Buchanan Aitken Schwebel Grave - Rookwood Cemetery
    Burial at Rookwood Independent Cemetery, New South Wales. Buried 8 Sep 1885. Inscription reads: "In Memory of Maria Buchanan the beloved wife of Adam Schw÷bel who died 8th Sept 1885 aged 35 years. Also Ernest infant son of the above, died 19th Oct 1885 aged 4 months."

    The verse is from the hymn "Submissive to Thy Will My God" by Thomas Haweis 1734-1820. The hymn is as follows:

    Submissive to thy will, my God,
    I all to thee resign,
    And bow before thy chastening rod,
    I mourn, but not repine.

    Why should my foolish heart complain,
    Where wisdom, truth, and love
    Direct the stroke, inflict the pain
    And point to joys above?

    How short are all my sufferings here,
    How needful every cross;
    Away, my unbelieving fear
    Nor call my gain my loss.

    Then give, dear Lord, or take away,
    I'll bless thy sacred name;
    My Jesus, yesterday, to-day,
    Forever is the same.
