Inscription:
Here lies the body of
Deac. JOSEPH CHAPLIN,
food for worms till the glorious
resurrection morning. He was born Feb. 22
1752 & died Dec. 12, 1813.Deceitful world farewell to you,
In heaven may I appear,
I bid you friends a short adieu
And will you meet me there;
And join the saints with angels bright
To praise the sacred Three,
And dwell with him in realms of light
Who dy’d to make us free.
Then while the grave’s before your eyes
Pray give this truth its weight
That on a moment as it flies
Hangs your eternal state.
Haste thou my soul arise and fly
Thro’ realms of lasting day
And say there’s nought below the sky
To tempt thee there to stay
Here my redeemer reigns with praise
And always from his throne,
He watches all my dust to raise
A body like his own.
