Here Rests the body of the REV JOSEPH COPES, the late Pastor of these united Churchs who in token of their affection have purchased this memorial to be erected Having: as a faithful minister of Christ, laboriously dispensed by word and doctrine the Gospel of salvation he according to the will of God fell asleep on the 6th of April 1822, in the 57th year of his age. In yonder sacred home I spent my bread Now silent mouldering here I lie in death But I shall rise again and yet declare A dread Amen to truths I publish'd there.
