Thanks for the link! I read the entire poem, and it is wonderful.
Wow, what a find. Great photo! Seems like a dark epitaph... perhaps he/she suffered.

I researched the quote, and found that it is from a long poem/hymn by William Augustus Muhlenberg: http://www.bartleby.com/248/109.html
Anyway, I think the excerpt as an epitaph seems dark, but the poem in its entirety is quite beatific.
