Standing in the cemetery, looking upon Dr. King’s gravestone, I see something more than drapery. Because the opening framed by the drapery is empty (often you would see an urn or flowers), I see an empty stage.My glass is run my grave you see
In time prepare to follow me.
Go home dear friends dry up your tears,
I must lie here till Christ appears.
And when he comes I hope to rise:
Unto a life that never dies.
Hymnary.org returns 74 instances of the line “The God of love will sure indulge,” which it attributes to Elizabeth Scott.The God of love will sure indulge
The flowing tear, the heaving sigh,
When righteous persons fall around,
When tender friends and kindred die
The epitaph, a relatively popular one, is from an Isaac Watts hymn.My flesh shall slumber in the ground
Till the last joyfull trump shall sound
Then burst the chains with sweet surprise
And in my Saviours image rise.
