"O place of graves, the first-loved form receive/ That weeping friends within thy precincts leave/ No holier dust shall ever mingle here/ Than he who earliest claim the mourner's tear/ Long o'er his tomb shall drooping pity bend/ And mourn the brother, pastor, guide and friend/ Mourn for the wit, the wisdom and the worth/ Which rest with him beneath this bed of earth/ Rich in the gifts of Genius - richer still/ in Christian graces guiding all his will/ Of mind serene - of temper kind and mild/ in suffering patient - quiet as a child/ in peace he lived peace he found in death/ For Hope and faith inspired his parting breath/ but not confined to this sepulchral sod/ his spirit springs to meet his father - God/ For him a crown = a wreath immortal blooms/ And sheds a glory o'er this place of tombs."
