Entire transcription from early 1900s:

In memory of Capt. DANIEL ADAMS, who died Oct. 10th, 1795. In the 75th year of his age.
Stop passenger; attentive stand,
And hear thy Sov’reign’s dread command
Which to our Father did reply,
And thou, O man, shalt surely die.
The solemn moment flies apace,
When you your right’eous Judge shall face,
And enter on th’ eternal shore
Of world’s, from whence reprieve’s nomore.
O listen then to wisdom’s voice,
Let her direct thy happy choice,
Be wise and make the Lord thy friend,
Before thy days on earth shall end.
Vain are the joys which sense bestows,
They lead to pain and endless woes,
Like midnight dews they disappear,
When swept away by ev’ning air.
How stupid, senseless mortals strive,
And weary out their slender lives,
To gather pleasures here from earth,
Which vanish ere they spring to birth.
While months and seasons roll away,
Who knows the fav’rite of the day?
Perhaps ‘tis thine, thine next to bear
The Judge pronounce the word, appear!
Let this amazing thought sink deep
Within thy breast and sense thy sleep:
Awake thy slumb’ring mind to see,
And be prepar’d to follow me.
