 St Abbs:
The monument is to the widows and orphans of St Abbs 
whose husbands and fathers were lost in the Eyemouth fishing disaster of 1881.

Thrice in the chapters of prevailing dark

The Lord said, "Father"; first, at that crossroad

Where the road taken, and its end, were stark;

"Father, forgive them ...": next the Saviour showed

The weight of grace before He bore sin's load;

And last, in words we barely understand

He placed His spirit in His Father's hand.

Luke 22: 42; 23: 34; 23: 46.
