Mother dear we hope to meet thee
When that day of life is fled
There in Heaven with joy to greet thee
[last line, obscured under ground by settlement of stone]

Last line is undoubtedly "Where no farewell tear is shed."

The quotation and its variations were commonly inscribed on gravestones of the period and can also be found in the liturgy of the Reformed Church in America from the mid 1800's.
