Nor skill, nor power, nor love can save
When God commands us to the grave.

Behold the solemn hour is come
By heaven assigned that seals my doom
That lays this head beneath the sod
And bears my willing soul to God
For me kind friends then grieve no more
My hearts at rest, the conflict’s o’er
Heaven’s glories break upon my view
Adieu, dear friends, vain world adieu.

Dear friends, who live to mourn & weep
Behold the grave wherein I sleep
Prepare for death, for you must die
And be entombed as well as I.
