Jonathan Edwards’ Last Words to his Children

Jonathan Edwards died on March 22, 1758. A few days before his death at age 54, when Edwards realized he was dying, he said to one of his daughters, “It seems to be the will of God that I should shortly leave you. As to my children, you are soon to be left fatherless, which I hope will be an inducement for you to seek a Father that will never fail you.”
