Think nothing strange/death happens/unto all/my lots today/
Tomorrow/thine will fall. Inscription to Rachel Moone died 1823.
Come gentle stranger turn aside
Leave where thou art inbruseive pride
On me this favour pray bestow
Approach and read these lines below
You're born in Sin Estranged from God
And must be wash'd in Jesus blood
Must know on earth your sins forgiven
If you expect to Enter Heaven
To this brief lecture pray atend
That's all pass on Obedient Friend
