Inscription: BLESSED ARE THE/ DEAD THAT DIE IN THE/ LORD. Rev. XIV. 13./
Hear what the voice from heaven proclaims/ For all the pious dead;/ Sweet is the savour of their names,/ And foft their sleeping bed./ They die in JESUS and are blefsed how kind their flumbers are!/ From suff'rings and from sins releas'd and freed from ev'ry snare/ Far from this world of toil and strife they're prefent with the LORD;/ The labours of their mortal life end in a large reward./
The modeft fnowdrop emblem of fair truth/ Conveys this lefson to the thoughtlefs youth/ That unafsuming worth will ever find/ A warm reception in a generous mind./
They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion which/ cannot be removed but abideth for ever Pf. cxxv. V.1.
