The Old Graveyard 8s
By Allison Steel

- Every Old Gravestone Ever, 1780
Text is the most common epitaph from early New England gravestones. Origin unknown.
O Stranger look as you pass by
As you are now so once was I
As I am now so you must be
Prepare for death and follow me
Death is a debt to nature due
Which I have paid and so must you.
