Inscription

Sacred To The Memory of
PATRICK GRACY
who departed this life January 9,1810.
aged 110 years
The busy scene of life is closed.
The body's laid in calm repose:
The happy soul has gone to rest,
Reclining on its Saviour's breast.
An active, useful life is o'er
And sin shall ne'er disturb it more;
Where cares no more shall spoil its peace.
It shall enjoy enternal rest.
Tis but a few whose days amount
To five score years and ten:
And all beyond that same account
Are sorrow, toil and pain.
