Inscription:

"Father I own thy sentence just,
And nature must decay;
I yield my body to the dust,
To dwell with fellow clay.

Though greedy worms devour my skin,
And gnaw my wasting flesh,
When God shall build my bones again,
He'll clothe them all afresh.

Then shall I see thy lovely face,
With strong immortal eyes,
And feast upon thy unknown grace
With pleasure and surprise."
