In Henry's will he left one last message.
To my children -- receive your parents' blessing. May the God of the Universe take you all, my beloved descendants, into His most holy keeping. In all your various walks, never forget that Christ died for you, and demands your whole heart. And, in all cases, do unto your fellow men, as you would wish your fellow men should do unto you.

And on his tombstone he left one last poem.

Blest Saviour now my soul receive
Transported from this world to live
And reign with thee above.
Where truth is sweetly lost in sight
And hope in full supreme delight
And everlasting love.
