Stone reads:
Hymn 660?
Text - Psalms 39 vs.5-8
Verse shown is vs.5-7
"Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah. Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them. And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee. (8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.)"
