back Oliver & Hepzibah Epitaphs next

At the bottom of Hepzibah’s tombstone appears this somewhat cryptic (and hard to read) verse:

“Shall life revisit dying worms
And spread the insects wings
And so shall man awake no more
The Saviour’s name to sing.”

You figure it out. And on Oliver’s:

“Shall man depart this earthly scene
As (?) never to return
No second spring of life revives
The ashes of the urn.”
