Steeple, Robert (Memorial)

UNDERNEATH A FLAT STONE
IN THIS CHURCH-YARD
LIETH THE BODY OF
ROBERT STEEPLE
WHO DIED ON THE 23RD DAY OF MAY 1845.

CHRIST IS TO ME AS LIFE ON EARTH,
AND DEATH TO ME AS GAIN,
BECAUSE I TRUST IN HIM ALONE
SALVATION TO OBTAIN.

SO BRITTLE IS THE STATE OF MAN,
SO SOON IT DOTH DECAY,
SO ALL THE GLORY OF THIS WORLD
MUST PASS AND FADE AWAY
